A number of plant protection products (PPPs) can be harmful to earwigs in orchards.

 

The guide aims to help growers to employ strategies to avoid the use of certain harmful products at key times of the season, while also using management techniques to protect and enhance earwig populations.

 

It will also help growers to judge which products to use and when to apply them to protect their orchards, while preserving earwig populations.
