Grape Pest Survey – 4th Week of September

— Written By and last updated by

This article is our last post for this grape season. Harvest is complete at all of our locations. We caught a few grape berry moths at the muscadine site in Rowan Co. and again found one glassy winged sharpshooter, along with a few Graphocephala leafhoppers.

We will continue to observe all our sites across the state in the search for  the invasive pest Spotted laternfly, not yet reported in NC, and keep you posted if there any updates.
