WSU Extension: May 1 is the deadline to enroll in a 4-H or add projects to compete as a 4-H member during the summer’s 4-H events. Contact WSU Stevens County Extension at (509)684-2588 or email Shannon for information on joining 4-H. Just a reminder now is the time to apply treatments to many fruit trees. Early preventative care can help prevent many pest issues that emerge later in the season. Applications now can prevent such issues as peach leaf curl, fire blight, aphids, scale, spider mites and many more fungal and pest issues. Remember to always consider using an integrated pest management strategy that focuses on the long term prevention of pests or their damage through a combination of techniques such as biological control, habitat manipulation, modification of cultural practices and use of resistant varieties.
