Includes management options for commercial and home use.

In all cases, follow the instructions on the pesticide label. The PNW Insect Management Handbook has no legal status, whereas the pesticide label is a legal document. Read the product label before making any pesticide applications.

Note: Products are listed in alphabetical order and not in order of preference or superiority of pest control.

All rates listed are for formulated products, unless specifically stated otherwise. Products which are pre-packaged mixtures of insecticides are not recommended for use.

Protect pollinators: Many pesticides are hazardous to bees. Look for bee precautionary statements on product labels and do not use these products during bloom or if bees are foraging in the orchard. See How to Reduce Bee Poisoning from Pesticides.
