We will bring the mobile teaching lab to an LREC orchard in which we are comparing registered and unregistered insecticides. Several new insecticides are nearing registration (2013-2014) and the efficacy of these products will be discussed. Field monitoring of citricola scale will be demonstrated including recommended treatment threshold densities for the fall period. We will also discuss ongoing organophosphate insecticide resistance studies.
