Sawfly on Mugho Pines

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Sawfly Larvae are currently feeding in “armies” on Pines (generally 2 and 3 needle pines. Most commonly Mugho Pines.
The best timing for our organic treatment is now, as they feed very fast and commonly de-foliate branches and often entire plants. They are sometimes hard to see as they are camouflaged to look like the needles… tapping a branch will sometimes cause them to all move at once and wiggle, which is fun if you a bored child, but not so fun if you are paying for the plants!
Note—-these guys will sometimes have more than one generation per year. so keep an eye out later in the summer!
