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.
