On average, about half of the trees in an orchard on dwarfing rootstock will have burrknots and, on average, about a third of those burrknots will be actively infested by dogwood borer larvae. Although Lorsban insecticide very effectively controls dogwod borer larvae, increasing restriction of its use make it less attractive. Our research has shown that dogwood borer can be effectively controlled by mating disruption with the Lesser peach tree borer pheromone

Strawberries are attacked by a variety of pests. Many cultural practices can help in managing these pests. The single most important factor in controlling pathogens is the maintenance of vigorously growing plants. Weeds compete with strawberries for essential water and nutrients. Weeds also promote pest injury by acting as alternate homes for pathogens and insects, by inhibiting spray penetration, and by maintaining a high humidity in the canopy.
