Dwyer Quoted in St. John Valley Times Article on Borer Traps

Jim Dwyer, crops specialist working with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension’s potato Integrated Pest Management program, spoke with the St. John Valley Times about placing 20 European corn borer traps alongside potato fields in the St. John Valley. The traps use a pheromone to attract male moths, which can cause problems for potato crops. The moths are then counted and collected, Dwyer said.
