Late Instar NOW Larva in a Pistachio Mummy
NOW Larvae in Almond Mummies
Almond mummies in the tree absorb morning dew and rain. In some years, mummies remain wet enough to keep many NOW larvae alive in the hull to adulthood.
Pistachio mummies on the ground provide an ideal development site for NOW larvae and are especially attractive when intermittently made wet by drip irrigation.
