The black cherry aphid is a common problem in cherry orchards. In order to control them, Kaolin can be applied in autumn to curb the return flight of winged aphids from the intermediate host back to the cherry tree. In spring, before bud burst, paraffin oil can be applied to reduce to the initial aphid population. After flowering, applying pyrethrum+soap (before leaf curling) and neem can help limit aphid population and thus damage.
Important note: Please check first whether the recommended products are approved in your country!

Summary translation

Die Schwarze Kirschenblattlaus ist ein bedeutender Schädling in Kirschenanlagen. Um sie zu kontrollieren, kann im Herbst Kaolin appliziert werden, um den Rückflug von geflügelten Blattläusen vom Zwischenwirt zurück auf den Kirschbaum einzudämmen. Im Frühjahr, vor dem Knospenaufbruch, kann Paraffinöl appliziert werden, um auf die Ausgangspopulation an Blattläusen zu reduzieren. Nach der Blüte kann die Anwendung von Pyrethrum+Seife (vor dem Einrollen der Blätter) und Neem helfen, die Blattlauspopulation und somit die Schäden zu begrenzen.

Teaser:Plant protection measures for autumn and spring to control the black cherry aphid.
What problem does the tool address?:The black cherry aphid (Myzus cerasi) is a major pest in low-stem cherry orchards with rain shelters. Black cherry aphid infestation results in severely deformed, curled and damaged leaves and contamination of the fruit with sooty mold fungi, rendering them unsaleable.
What solution does the tool offer?:This video shows which plant protection measures can be used in autumn and spring to control the black cherry aphid.
Type of Practice Tool:Video
