New Invasive Pest Threatens Western Tree Nut Industry

Western tree nut commodities just got through a very tough season, and markets are still less than ideal.  The last thing growers want to hear about is a new pest threatening their orchard production.  But the Carpophilus Beetle has already been under the radar far too long, damaging Central Valley orchards under the guise of “Navel Orangeworm.”  Watch this brief video with Bob Klein from the California Pistachio Research Board as he explains, and read more about this new pest in the December and January issues of Pacific Nut Producer magazine.
