We have been growing Montmorency and North Star in Wisconsin for years (over 20 years between 2 places) and haven't had any insect problems to worry about. Never sprayed any of them with anything that I recall, unless they got dormant oil years ago when I used to remember to do a dormant oil spray in the spring. Usually the birds get their share (and it's the big half that they take), but as I mentioned earlier in the year, netting the trees helps some.
But no problem with insects to worry about around here (western Wisconsin an hour east of St Paul, Minnnesota.)
