Please click on link to view the Fruit Pest Update on the UW-Extension Door County site:
This is our final pest update edition for the 2019 growing season.
Just a few reminders as we go into the dormant season:
1. Keep all cooler-stored fruit at a steady temperature to slow down storage disorders from expressing themselves.
2. Keep tree guards in place and consider putting out rodenticides (mouse/vole pellets) in late fall to decrease winter injury and possible tree girdling.
3. Assess which fruit blocks or individual trees are not financially solvent and need to be removed. Fall is a great time to accomplish renovations before the soil freezes completely.
It’s been a pleasure sharing information with you this year, and I look forward to a productive 2020 growing season.
From all of us at PARS, have a great Thanksgiving and Holiday Season!
