CBB in the Age of COVID-19

Coffee berry borers don’t practice social distancing! In fact, these invasive pests are massing in the coffee cherries of local growers all over the state. That’s why CTAHR’s coffee berry borer researchers and the Coffee Berry Borer Area-wide Program are hosting virtual talk-story sessions to provide help and information to coffee producers.

Topics include CBB IPM, CBB management, traps and repellents, and predators and parasitoids. The goal is finding solutions using positive, polite conversation. The sessions are every Thursday in April (4/23, 4/30) and May (5/7. 5/14, 5/21, 5/28), 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. They’re open to all who are interested.
