Fruit Fly Emerges In The Dalles

The cherry fruit fly emerged in The Dalles area on Wednesday.  That’s according to Oregon State University Wasco County Extension Horticulturist Lynn Long.  The entire cherry-growing area, including The Dalles, Mosier, and Dufur, are within a cherry fruit fly control district.  All homeowners with a backyard tree as well as commercial orchardists are required by state ordinance to apply a control program.  Long says for homeowners the recommended materials would include Spinosad or Malathion.  To obtain a free pesticide guide for cherry fruit fly and other tree fruit pests, contact the Wasco County Extension Office at 541-296-5494.
