Pandemis leafroller: Pandemis may build up if oil/chlorpyrifos sprays have not been applied in recent years, especially when cherry orchard is near apple and pear orchards.

Apply when forecasts predict a warm weather pattern for 3 or more days. This spray timing is too early to control obliquebanded leafroller.
