Earwig Trapping, Releases and Pesticide Impacts

Aldo Hanel, WSU Entomology spoke at the 2024 NCW Tree Fruit Days on earwigs for biocontrol. Moving earwigs from stone fruit to pome fruit can improve control of woolly apple aphids and pear psylla, but conservation of earwigs is key. NCW Tree Fruit Days is co-sponsored by WSU Extension, NCW Fieldman’s Association, NW Cherry Growers and Pear Bureau Northwest.
