Abstract:The pecan serpentine leafminer, Stigmella juglandifoliella (Clemens), found on pecan in Georgia has a single life stage dominant in a commercial orchard at any given time. Sampling larvae and determining the time when pupation occurred was an effective forecasting tool for peak adult emergence. Single applications of carbaryl, dimethoate, diflubenzuron, or fenvalerate, timed to coincide with peak adult emergence, effectively controlled the following leafminer generation. However, carbonyl did not maintain a high degree of control. Larvicides applied to pecan foliage for control of S. juglandifoliella and Cameraria caryaefoliella (Clemens) did not effectively reduce these larval populations.
