BOXING IT UP
(Dave Kain & Art Agnello, Entomology, Geneva)

  With this issue, Scaffolds ceases publication for the season; we anticipate starting up again next March.  In February, as usual, we’ll send out an email to all current subscribers to set up next year’s mailing list.  Our thanks to all of you who have sent comments, suggestions, and articles our way, a practice we hope you’ll continue.  As a wrap-up, here’s our annual summary of the year’s pheromone trap results and an Index of Volume 17, 2008 of Scaffolds Fruit Journal.

KEY = GFW - Green Fruitworm; RBLR - Redbanded Leafroller; STLM - Spotted Tentiform Leafminer; OFM - Oriental Fruit Moth (in apples); LAW - Lesser Appleworm; CM - Codling Moth; SJS - San Jose Scale; APB - American Plum Borer (in cherries); LPTB - Lesser Peachtree Borer (in cherries); DWB – Dogwood Borer; PL - Pandemis Leafroller; OBLR - Obliquebanded Leafroller; PTB - Peachtree Borer; FTLR - Fruittree leafrolller; AM - Apple Maggot; * - first catch of the generation
