“Oh Nuts!” Ant Management in Almond and Pistachio Orchards


About This Episode

In the average almond and pistachio orchard, upwards of 12 different ant species can be found. But, only one or two of those species will actually have a negative economic impact. Kris Tollerup, integrated pest management advisor for the University of California’s Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources, joins the podcast to break down ways to distinguish between ant species in the orchard, examine the effect species like the southern fire and pavement ants can have, evaluate monitoring and control strategies, and explore ant management considerations for new orchards.
