|Love to hear what home orchardist are doing to manage the figeater beetle.|
UC Davis IPM is recommending to "Remove leaf litter and other organic matter from the soil surface in spring to starve larvae. Also, allow the soil surface to dry out and harden to imprison the adults before they emerge. Flood irrigate to destroy eggs and young larvae; they cannot tolerate saturated soil for over 2 days. No chemical controls are recommended."
Anybody have any other methods?
