Hi have leaves on numerous magnolia plants that look like this. Can you help identify what's chewing them and what I need to control it? Most of the leaves affected are at the bottom of the tree. There is often a hole right through to the underside of the leaf, but not always. There is no evidence of sooty mould. Thanks!

Thank you for contacting Yates regarding the magnolia tree, it looks like the damage was caused by chewing insects such as caterpillars or beetle larvae. Have a close examination under the leaves and you should be able to spot them. Try Yates Success Ultra Insect Control. Hope this helps and happy gardening. Best Regards, Louise Yates Horticulturalist
