A number of NHGPGA members have again signed up for the 2010 season to participate in the squash vine borer trapping program sponsored by the UNH Cooperative extension, under the guidance of George Hamilton, Extension Educator, Agricultural Resources. Below is an outline of the method used to trap these pests, a picture of George demonstrating the trap, and a link to the UNH Cooperative Extension web page where the data supplied by the growers will be posted weekly. Check back regularly to view the trapping rates across New Hampshire.
