April 21, 2009 Light Brown Apple Moth Management/Regulation Update- Watsonville
The objective of this CORF 1/2-day workshop was to provide participants with the latest updated information on the light brown apple moth (LBAM).
LBAM is an invasive pest that attacks over 250 crops, and 2000 host and ornamental plants. Native to Australia, it was first detected in the continental United States in February 2007 and has since infested 10 Bay Area and Central Coast counties.
Federal and State quarantines are established and prohibit the movement of all nursery stock and host fruits and vegetables from retail and production nurseries in the quarantine region unless shipments are certified as free from the pest.
This workshop provided participants with information concerning the moth's biology, what are we learning about biological control, how to enhance natural biocontrol, regulatory issues, growers' perspectives in dealing with this pest, IPM principles as they apply to management of this pest and current research.
