Pecan Ambrosia Beetle Traps

We found our first pecan ambrosia beetles in pecans in Cook County as early as January 23rd last year.  Especially at risk are stressed trees and/or newly planted pecan seedlings during emergence from winter dormancy. A good way to detect these insects in an orchard is with Pecan Ambrosia Beetle Traps that are easy to make.  Click the link below for more information: Tucker Price
