The development and appearance of pests will vary, depending upon your location. The treatment times discussed on this site are based on the best information we have at the writing of the Pa Newsletter, but these times can vary from year to year. It is imperative that you monitor pest activity each year.

In addition, these materials contain pesticide suggestions that are subject to change at any time. These suggestions, when given, are provided only as a guide. Due to constantly changing labels and product registrations, some of the suggestions given on this site may no longer be legal by the time you read them. Not all products have been evaluated for each pest listed. If any information in these suggestions disagrees with the label, the suggestion must be disregarded. The users of this information assume all risks for personal injury or property damage.

The authors and the Penn State College of Agricultural Sciences and PA Department of Agriculture assume no liability resulting from the use of these pest control suggestions. It is always the pesticide applicator's responsibility, by law, to read and follow current label directions for the specific pesticide being used. Likewise pest control suggestions vary between states. Always acquire the most current suggestions from your local state cooperative extension office.

Where trade names are used, no discrimination is intended and no endorsement by The Pennsylvania State University or PA Department of Agriculture is implied. Every attempt is made to produce information that is complete, timely, and accurate, the pesticide user bears the responsibility of consulting the pesticide label and adhering to those directions.

Pest control suggestions vary between states and countries. Listed links may include pest control suggestions and control strategies which may no longer be registered for use or labeled for your individual state or country. Always check with your local county extension office, department of agriculture office or state extension specialist to acquire the most current pest control suggestions.
