Karnal bunt
What is it? Karnal bunt (also known as partial bunt) is a
quarantine disease of wheat (Triticum aestivum),
durum wheat (T. durum) and triticale
(x Triticosecale). It is caused by the fungal
pathogen Tilletia indica. The pathogen is not
present in the UK or in any EU member state.
However, it has been intercepted in grain
imports from countries already known to have
Karnal bunt. If the pathogen were to be
introduced it could establish...

pnyellowjackets.jpg

Only a few of the very large number of
wasp species in California live a social
life. These species are referred to as social
wasps. Some social wasps are predators for
most or all of the year and provide a great
benefit by killing large numbers of plant-
feeding insects and nuisance flies; others
are exclusively scavengers. Wasps become
a problem only when they threaten to sting
humans. In California, yellowjackets are
the primary pests among...
