Insect survey within Pistachio farms/orchards
This project increased knowledge about pest and beneficial species of insects and mites in Australian pistachio orchards. It looked at pests that currently pose a risk to pistachio production, or that have the potential to move into orchards. While the project team found the pest status of surveyed pistachio orchards to be very low (and, in fact, the insects with the highest numbers seen were beneficials), they identified key pests of interest as being Carpophilus beetle, carob moth, light brown apple moth, and small bugs and weevils.
