Rodents of unusual size —California has got them! The new kid on the block is Nutria, a semiaquatic rodent, that has invaded California’s waterways, and is doing a lot of damage.  USDA is asking farmers for help in locating these pests to be removed. Derek Milsaps from USDA-APHIS presented some information on this pest at the Tree & Vine Expo in Turlock recently.  Watch his brief interview from the expo, and read more about it in the coming issue of Pacific Nut Producer Magazine.  Don’t currently receive the magazine?  Subscribe FREE today at: https://malcolmmedia.com/pacific-nut-producer-magazine-subscriptions/
