Below is an alert from the CRC in Chicago. We are still gathering information in our area to see if we also have a high level of infestation of blueberries. Please let us know if you are finding infestation in blueberries here in Atlanta.
Blueberries: There has been a significant increase in insect infestation of blueberries. Accordingly, the CRC recommends that the following procedure be done to all fresh blueberries until October 31, 2021.
Prepare a quart-sized bowl of soapy water per pint of blueberries.
Soak and agitate the blueberries in the soapy water for 20-30 seconds.
Rinse blueberries in running water.
An exception to this is organic blueberries which should be washed and checked using the thrip-cloth method. Additionally, U-pick blueberries should be avoided as they are often infested with scale insects and other bugs. One should only use them if they were first checked for scales and other insects using a thrip cloth.
