Fact Sheet

This fact sheet outlines the latest information on an integrated approach for controlling macadamia seed weevil, a serious pest of macadamia orchards. The use of insecticides alone is not an effective control for this adaptable native pest, rather it must be part of an integrated pest management strategy. Understanding the weevil’s life cycle, monitoring the orchard regularly to identify critical times for control activities and practising good orchard hygiene are all fundamental elements of a control program.
