This project had the overall aim of preventing losses to pre-harvest insect pests in Michigan vineyards. The goals were to test wasp trapping strategies, evaluate chemical control of a variety of harvest pests, and help determine the relationship between brown marmorated stink bug, spotted wing drosophila and native fruit fly infestations. This research is informing our late-season pest control recommendations to vineyard managers. We communicated our results through bi-weekly MSUE Vineyard Scouting Reports, Extension meetings, Fact Sheets, and in-season workshops.
