Mint Pest Alert Newsletter
This electronic newsletter is being used to inform growers, fieldmen and industry representatives in the mint production areas of Oregon about mint root borer and cutworm/armyworm development by geographic regions. These three pests have life cycles that offer opportunities for multiple target insect control with a single, properly timed pesticide application. This electronic Pest Alert notification system will assist in management decisions that maximize the effectiveness of insecticide applications for these pests. A weekly newsletter will be sent out to three different regions: Central Oregon, Grande Ronde Valley and the Willamette Valley.
