Pecan Insect Pests with Dr. Richard Heerema
Pecans aren’t widely planted in California, and many pecan pests and diseases are not present in the state (note: if acreage goes up, this will likely change!). Phoebe Gordon and Dr. Richard Heerema of New Mexico State University discuss the major pests that you can expect to find in a California pecan orchard: black pecan aphids, yellow aphids (which can be two different species), and stink bugs.
