Who Should Attend:  Local Pest Control Advisers (PCAs), GROWERS who manage their own pest control (PRIVATE APPLICATORS) or who have pest control questions, anyone looking for viticulture DPR CE credits, viticulture TECHNICAL ADVISORS in Lodi, and winemakers/grower relations personnel interested in learning about vineyard pest management.

Description:  Our group meets monthly to discuss current vineyard pests and their management. The goal is to create a strong local network for communicating the best IPM strategies and for support in solving viticultural anomalies. Fruit flies have been a big problem this year in many crops across California. This month, our IPM meeting will focus on the California-quarantined oriental fruit fly (Bactrocera dorsalis, detected in Sacramento Co. on September 12, 2023) and its threat to vineyards. Damage occurs when the female lays her eggs inside fruit, which then hatch into maggots. Note that this species is not the one responsible for typical sour rot.

For general information on the oriental fruit fly, the University of Florida has a nice overview here (note that is has not been updated since 2016):  entnemdept.ufl.edu/creatures/fruit/tropical/oriental_fruit_fly.htm.
