Hi Karen,

It appears that your gooseberry bush is being attacked by the 3 line potato beetle. There is not a product that is registered to control this particular beetle but Yates Pyrethrum Insect Pest Killer Concentrate which is a natural insecticide is registered for use on edible crops. It is a contact spray which ensure the rapid knockdown of pests. There is a 1 day withholding period for this product. Hand removal (if possible) is also an option.
