During the summers of 1976–77, a pilot pest management program for grapes was tested in Erie Co., Pennsylvania. Nine growers participated in 1976 (135.6 ha) and 14 growers participated in 1977 (214.0 ha). Vineyards were scouted weekly for 15 wk beginning June 1. Growers used the resulting information on insect and mite populations to optimize their spray practices. Avg number of postbloom insecticide applications in 1976 was 2.5 for nonparticipants and 0.8 applications for participants and in 1977 was 2.3 applications for nonparticipants and 1.1 applications for participants. Scouting costs, including cost of attractant traps, averaged $.30/0.4 ha per wk.
