Did you catch Suterra on social media this week? Recap on our most recent posts for mating disruption information, grower tips and tricks and more in this new biweekly summary.

August 1: Cover Cropping

Did you know that cover cropping helps native pollinators and honeybees alike? Cover crops provide habitat for native pollinators and nutrition for bees that are working overtime.

August 2: Argentine Ants

Argentine Ants are one of the most widely distributed pests in the world. They form massive colonies and use pheromones to create trails on which they carry food back to their nest- often, these ant 'highways' lead them right to your food storage warehouse where they have easy access to your product. 🐜🐜🐜
Suterra's BioAmp® AA uses the ant's trail pheromone against them, allowing you to mimic their trail pheromone and pave a 'road' to get them right where you want them for easy control.

August 3: Visalia Peaches

Have you ever had a peach straight off the tree? Several members of the Suterra team had the opportunity to travel to beautiful Visalia last week for some field visits with the field team, and we even had the privilege to sample some fruit from the growers we service. Here's hoping for more beautiful days and delicious fruit!

August 5: Harvest Evaluation

As almond harvest begins, remember to collect some nut samples directly from the field for harvest damage evaluation! If time is limited now, samples can be held in cold storage and processed once harvest is complete. Damage evaluation is critical in determining the success of your IPM program and planning for next season.
