Releasing the hounds on Hudson pear
08 Oct 2020
The ‘Hudson Pear - Releasing the Hounds Project’ has developed a series of YouTubes videos about Hudson pear, Cylindropuntia pallida.
The informative videos focus on best practice around the integrated management of Hudson pear, including how to incorporate the use of the new biological control agent Dactylopius tomentosus (‘californica var. parkeri’ lineage) into your management program to optimize long-term results. Head to Northern Slopes Landcare YouTube channel to watch the series.
