Controlling Bachac and Biting Ants in Citric Orchards
Bachacs are one of the most destructive insect pests of citrus in Trinidad. They damage leaves in mature trees which can reduce yield. Severe infestations can lead to the death of young citrus seedlings.
There are only two species of bachacs in Trinidad: Atta cephalotes and Acromyrmex octospinosus.
