Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Scientists at the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Research Service in Wapato, Washington, conduct research on biology and management of insect pests of tree fruits and potatoes. The tree fruit research group has expertise in plant-insect interactions, insect ecology, insect physiology, biological control, chemical ecology, insect genetics, and integrated pest management. Our goal is to provide basic and applied knowledge needed to develop or improve integrated pest management in temperate tree fruits. This article provides an update on important research conducted at the USDA laboratory in Wapato, WA.
