Time of Application Material/gal water Suggested To Control Remarks
When berries first turn blue (Repeat at 10-14 day intervals through harvest) 0.5 lb Surround at Home
1 tbsp carbaryl 80S
2 tbsp captan 50W
Blueberry maggot, spotted wing drosophila, blueberry tip borer, fruit rot Sevin will control Japanese beetles and fruit worms. Do not extend spray intervals longer than 7 days if there is pressure from spotted wing drosophila. Open pruning will aid in SWD management, as will prompt harvest of ripe berries. Addition of table sugar at the rate of 1/5 oz per gal will aid in efficacy of chemical control of SWD.
