Project Happy Apples: Reducing codling moth damage in backyard orchards

This webinar is part of the 2019 series of Advanced Training Webinars for Master Gardeners sponsored by Oregon State University Extension.

Seeing 'wormy' apples and pears in your backyard orchard? It's a good chance that the problem is a common fruit damaging insect, codling moth. Join Amy Jo Detweiler (OSU Extension Horticulture) for a in-depth discussion on recognizing codling moth damage and management options. Amy Jo will also share an innovative way of sharing information with the public: Project Happy Apples combines data from local monitoring of codling moth flights with timely emailed tips to the interested public. Tips & resources will be shared if you are interested in offering a similar project in your county.
