Just a general question. Anyone know of the best pesticide to use on grapevines?

TEMPO by the Bayer Corporation. It was originally developed as a cotton poison and will take care of just about any pest you have. It is odorless and comes in a liquid concentrate. A bit pricy but a little goes a very long way.

Freud, it really depends on what pest you are trying to controll.
Pesticides come in many catagories.
Insecticides = insects
Herbicides = weed killer
Fungicides = molds and fungus
What kind of pests are you fighting?

Insects actually. I have the standard Japanese Beetles, bagworms, and an insect that I have just seen for the first time in the seven years I've been here. I need to figure out how to identify it. General description is that is looks to have a little of both spider and ant with an orange back with legs that are black and is about 1/2 inch long. Strange looking thing and very aware as when I put my finger near it it reacts and goes around the other side of the stem it's sitting on. Strange. I'm in Maryland and I sprayed Diazinon yesterday with little effect.

I use a standard mix called "orchard spray" that's labelled for grapes as well as apples and other tree fruit. It contains a fungicide and insecticide. Don't remember that it is labelled for jap beetles, though, not much residual seems to do a job on them unless you spray them directly. I trap them, and over the last 5 years the numbers have declined each year on my place.
