According to UCCE Pest Management Guidelines, the most effective insecticide treatment approach is the combination use of chlorpyrifos (Lorsbanâ) and imidacloprid (Admireâ) throughout the season. Treatment begins in infested vineyards during the spring (just prior to budbreak) with a chlorpyrifos application directed towards the trunk and the base of the vine to capture movement of ants and mealybugs from the roots up to the aerial parts of the vines. Treatment is then followed up around bloom with a full rate (32 oz.) application of imidacloprid through the drip system. In some cases, growers may chose a split rate application of imidacloprid in which 16 oz. are applied at bloom and a second application is made approximately 30 days before harvest. The timing of the second application may have to be coordinated for Glassy-winged sharpshooter control. A late fall foliar insecticide may be warranted to kill crawlers on foliage in order to prevent wind spread of contaminated leaves during leaf drop. Read and check the label directions of these products carefully to ensure that they are labeled for use on grape and the guidelines for rates, special local needs, re-entry intervals and pre-harvest intervals are met. 2


A serious outbreak of flavescence dorée (FD) was reported in Piemonte, northwestern Italy, in 1998, and since then, the disease has compromised the economy of this traditional wine-growing area, even following the application of compulsory insecticide treatments to control Scaphoideus titanus, the vector of the causal phytoplasma. 3
