Managing pear psylla and mites in the Wenatchee Valley and nearby areas has become increasingly difficult and costly. Resistance is a constant issue and many products have only marginal effects on the pests. Old strategies are less reliable and alternatives are gaining popularity. Join WSU Extension for a discussion on psylla and mite IPM in pears.
