Pine tip moth 2013

Asked April 13, 2013, 12:17 PM EDT

We are in East mountain area: Sedillo and Meadow Road. When is the projected flight time of the pine tip moth for this year? We want to apply a systemic 2 to 3 weeks prior to moth flight.

To the best of our knowledge, that flight time is now. We can't confirm this with trapping data, as no trapping has been done for over a decade. Based on trapping data from earlier efforts, the third week in April is when we expect them to fly. It should be a little behind up in the mountains where you are. You should apply the product now.
