Find historical biofixes and links to previous week’s insect activity below.

April 3, 2017  – We set the first biofix for codling moth at 4/3 in an Ashley walnut orchard just south of Red Bluff. The next event for codling moth will be female catch which we will use to estimate first egg hatch. The San Jose scale biofix for 3/30 came from almonds.

March 27, 2017 – The oriental fruit moth (OFM) biofix came from an almond orchard south of Red Bluff. We trapped one male. A codling moth (CM) was trapped on 3/20 in Ashley walnut. There has been little to no CM flight activity in the cool wet weather.

Special thanks to Suterra for providing our trapping supplies.
