We are pleased to host this talk about the importance of our native bees and the part they play in pollinating fruit and other crops in western Washington, and how we can be good neighbors with our bees. This conversation will cover an overview of native bees and other pollinators; what pollination is and how it happens. 

Bumble bees are a great gateway into our native bees and other pollinators.   We will focus on our local bumble bees (charismatic megafauna of our pollinator community) as a starting place on the learning path to our local native pollinators.  This will include a quick “how to ID” session for our local bumble bee species, conservation discussion and opportunities for supporting our pollinators.

Learn them, respect them, protect them!

SSFS March 2022 Meeting: Building a Codling Moth Trap

Building a Codling Moth Trap,  Tuesday March 1st at 7: pm

SSFS is very pleased to have Peg Amandes demonstrate how toBuild a Codling Moth trap. 

She builds them out of easily available material and uses a pheromone lure as an attractant. This trap is specific to Codling Moths.

Most of us have Codling moths, a destructive insect that leaves a burrow in the apple and frass on the exterior. The classic worm in the apple. Pheromone lures have been used with success by Peg and several other members of Western Cascade (our parent club).

Peg is a longtime member and has previously talked on various subjects including maple syrup production from our native Big Leaf maples, fruit preservation techniques, and deterring birds from eating strawberries. Always on the vanguard of what’s happening!

South Sound Fruit Society is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
