Protecting your ROI
Protection you can count on all season long!
CLEMSON University: “In areas like middle Georgia where peaches are everywhere, it’s almost like you have to have all those trees under disruption for it to work. In areas where it’s less densely planted, like in the upstate of South Carolina and the upstate of Georgia where you have small peach orchards isolated from each other, the mating disruption can work really well on its own.” - Dr. Brett Blaauw
VT/PSC/WVU: Comparison of Mating Disruption and Insecticide Application for Control of Peachtree Borer and Lesser Peachtree Borer (Lepidoptera: Sesiidae) in Peach: “ Damage from S. exitiosa (PTB) is generally confined to the trunk and roots near the soil line, while damage from S. pictipes (LPTB) occurs in the upper trunk and scaffold limbs. Consecutive infestation and larval feeding seasons can result in a decline in tree health and vigor, increase susceptibility to disease and damage from other pests, or, in severe cases, cause tree death from girdling of major scaffold limbs and/or the trunk.” Insects. 2020 Oct; 11(10): 658; Daniel L.
