About Us:

We are an environmentally-friendly control Program for one of the biggest pests of apple and pear trees—the codling moth. Since the Program started more than 20 years ago, the amount of pesticides used in the valley against codling moth has dropped by 96%. Our Program breeds and sterilizes codling moths at our state-of-the-art facility in Osoyoos, and we release them into orchards where they mate with wild moths to prevent the population from reproducing. Our Program also provides trapping, monitoring, education, and enforcement services for the growers.

About the Position:

Are you a hard-working outdoor enthusiast looking for rewarding work this summer? If so, we have the perfect position for you! Our seasonal Field Staff spend the day outside driving an ATV while protecting local apple orchards from their greatest nemesis, the codling moth. Field Staff work outside in local orchard areas and complete the daily sterile moth releases by ATV. This position will interact with local orchard and urban growers to communicate program information, policies, and procedures in a professional and effective manner. Field staff members will also be responsible for regularly monitoring codling moth pheromone traps and fruit checking. Hours of work are 8am to 4pm, with a half an hour unpaid lunch.

About You:

You enjoy working outside and have an eye for detail. You can follow instructions and work independently or as part of a team. You are a responsible driver and employee that will take care when driving to and through orchards to deliver moths. You are physically fit, comfortable operating an ATV, able to stand/walk for extended periods of time, and work in various weather conditions including high summer temperatures. Must have a valid driver’s license and clean driver’s abstract.
