Who Am I?

OLB is a sap-sucking insect that feeds on the underside of leaves. It is considered a low risk pest, but if ignored for a long periods of time, it can eventually reduce photosynthesis and cause defoliation. OLB creates tiny yellow dots on the front side of leaves. Infested leaves exhibit large yellow areas and will eventually drop as time progresses.

Control Measures

Calendrier: Il est plus facile et plus rentable de surmonter les infestations au cours des premières étapes. Surveillez régulièrement le champ et recherchez les signes ci-dessus.

Maintenez un couvert végétal en bonne santé en évitant les longues périodes de temps où les plantes manquent d’eau, d’irrigation adéquate ou de fertilisation, ce qui leur cause un stress. Des auvents plus sains risquent moins d’être attaqués.

Les produits utilisés dans une ou plusieurs régions du monde peuvent contenir les ingrédients suivants :

diméthoate, dinotéfurane, imidaclopride, et clothianidine.

huile de neem et huile minérale.

*Names marked in red are considered to be highly poisonous to beneficial insects.

*Names marked in green are considered to be organic and IPM (integrated pest management) compatible.

Caution and careful notice should be taken when using any plant protection products (insecticides, fungicides, and herbicides). It is the grower’s sole responsibility to keep track of the legal uses and permissions with respect to the laws in their country and destination markets. Always read the instructions written on labels, and in a case of contradiction, work in accordance to the product label. Keep in mind that information written on the label usually applies to local markets. Pest control products intended for organic farming are generally considered to be less effective in comparison to conventional products. When dealing with organic, biologic, and to some extent a small number of conventional chemical products, a complete eradication of a pest or disease will often require several iterations of a specific treatment or combination of treatments.
