Tent Caterpillars And Haskap
Tent caterpillar outbreaks have recently occurred in Prince George, BC, and Prince Albert, SK. Questions about larger provincial infestations are being raised. So far they do not appear to have acquired a taste for edible blue honeysuckles. Haskap growers should monitor their orchards closely for this pest. The following PDF links are to MDSD's for BTK, which is approved for use on edible blue honeysuckles: BioProtec 3P, Dipel 2X. Please report any tent caterpillar outbreaks in your orchard to Haskap Canada.
