Casebearer damage near peak

    Here's the figures on this year's pecan nut casebearer population in an unsprayed native pecan grove at the Pecan Experiment Field (above). As of today, 10.7% of nut clusters in this orchard have been damaged by casebearer. I don't expect the damage level to go much higher at this point, probably leveling off at around 12% damage for the year.
