The management of arthropods in apple and peach orchards
in the eastern United States is a complex and difficult task
(Madsen and Morgan 1970, Chapman and Lienk 1971, Howitt
1993, Hogmire 1995). IPM programs for these crops are perhaps the
most complex of all cropping systems, particularly in the eastern
United States, where the diversity of tree fruit pests is much greater
than in other parts of North America.
