Pest Control

What else is involved with working on a blueberry farm?

Practices used in maintaining blueberry bush health include:

  • Insect and Disease Management – Few insect and disease problems are associated with blueberries, but the plants must be protected to avoid berry and leaf damage.
  • Bird Control – Netting should be used as soon as the first fruits turn blue and until the harvest is complete to protect the plants from birds.
