Promoting weaver ants in your orchard (Summary)

Promoting weaver ants in your orchard (Summary)

January 11, 2021

Weaver ants help to protect your fruit and nuts from fruit flies and many other pests. If you don’t have weaver ants in your orchard yet, collect all the nests from an ant colony and transfer them to one of your fruit trees. Help the ants to spread to more trees by connecting neighbouring trees with a string or stick. If ants from neighbouring trees fight, they are from different colonies and should be separated. Cut any branches that connect both trees. Apply ash to your arms and feet, or to the branch on which you will stand, to pick the fruit.

The worms that hatch from these eggs leave the spoilt fruit after one week and crawl into the soil where they develop into fruit flies. From one infested fruit many fruit flies can develop, so never leave any fruit on the ground in the open air.
