How do I treat my cherry tree for cherry slug as the leaves are curled up and brown
Do you need to spray more than once?
The pear and cherry slug can be controlled using Yates Success Ultra which contains a naturally occurring soil insecticide which is particularly effective against this pest. A follow up spray 7 days later may be required to ensure all the pests are controlled. The pear and cherry slugs will stop feeding immediately however they may take up to 3 days to die. The earlier you treat the pest the less foliar damage will occur, so as soon as you see the pest spray immediately.
