Pacific Northwest Insect Management Handbook
Christmas Tree Plantation Pests
- Product names are listed as examples only. There may be numerous product options for some active ingredients.
- Experience has shown that use of pyrethroid insecticides is associated with subsequent spider mite outbreaks. Therefore, monitor fields closely after using these materials.
- Check current label for application options (i.e., aerial vs. ground only, restrictions, re-entry intervals, pollinator safety, groundwater and stream buffer requirements, application timing, etc.)
- To avoid resistance, growers are advised to not use repeated application of the same active ingredient or repeated use of chemicals in the same mode of action group.
Note: Products are listed in alphabetical order and not in order of preference or superiority of pest control.
