I have a number of fully grown cherry trees and the leaves are being eaten by an insect. From a distance the foliage has taken on a silver appearance in parts.

I want to know what is eating the trees ?

And then what spray to use?

Kind regards

Marie

Hi Marie,

Most likely is what is called a pear slug, very common for flowering cherries and not detrimental to the health of the tree and definitely not warranting to spray for. They are there for a relatively short time and it would be very hard to getting the timing of any spraying right!. The silver is also common due to mite damage, once again not worthy of spraying for (any spraying would be ineffective)

Thanks
