Gall Midge in Highbush Blueberry

I am finding Gall Midge this week week in emergence traps and on sticky traps. This week’s temperatures also support gall Midge activity. Flower buds need to be greater than stage two to be venerable. Rabbiteye flowers buds have not progressed enough for these fields to be treated for gall midge. Most of our highbush varieties have buds at stage two or three and may warrant treatment.
