We dispatch our trees every Tuesday, for delivery to most states of Australia.
For WA and Tasmania, we send trees on the first Tuesday of each month.
The larvae are yellow-green and slender – up to 200mm long; once mature the moth is around 10mm long when the wings are folded in a bell shape. You will notice this moth activity more around the new moon phase and during a full moon.
Plant Part: Fruit and leaves
Season: Spring - Summer
Symptoms: Chewed and skeletonised leaves, you may notice webbing in rolled leaves. Fruit will have chew holes from the larvae near the stem end.
Control: Good early season control is essential. Pheromone traps will help to contain the moth in flight stage and Dipel sprays when in the caterpillar stage.
Prevention: Generally, the beneficial insects like spiders and earwigs in your garden will keep this grub at bay.
