Casebearer update 19 June 2013

    We found 1% nut entry by first summer generation pecan nut casebearer larvae this morning.
We captured 2 additional moths in all 5 of our pheromone traps. I looked at the weather forecast early this morning and discovered we would have good conditions for spraying today (low wind, temperatures below 85 and little chance of rain). Besides applying an insecticide we also made our first application of a fungicide to control pecan scab.
