In a recent survey of pine mouse infestation, it was determined that approximately 37% of the orchard land had serious enough damage to warrant control measures. Some growers are using chlorophacinone as a ground spray. We are also putting out tarpaper bait stations and baiting with either Ramik Brown or Rozol pellets. There has been mixed results with both methods and our growers are still looking for a better control method.
