Section 18 for Brown Marmorated Sting Bug (BMSB) Management on Stone and Pome Fruit Approved

Joanne Whalen, Extension IPM Specialist; jwhalen@udel.edu

This week we received the letter from EPA that they approved our Section 18 request for the use of dinotefuran (Trade Names: Venom from Valent U.S.A. Corporation; Scorpion from Gowan Company, LLC) to control BMSB on stone and pome fruits. This use expires on Oct 15, 2011. Please refer to http://agdev.anr.udel.edu/weeklycropupdate/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/DinotefuranSec18.pdf for more information on use rates and restrictions. Both labels are also available so please contact either David Pyne at the Delaware Department of Agriculture (David.Pyne@state.de.us) or Joanne Whalen (jwhalen@udel.edu) for more information.
