Preventing re-infestation of Woolly Aphids in Pink Lady Apple Tree.

Tree was well netted and the severe presence of Woolly Apids was detected late (when fruit was well formed). Dis some pruning and sprayed with metho/water. Want to avoid this happening again

Hello Russell, well done on your prevention strategies! Pruning out heavily infested branches is a great start, and also opens up the canopy to reduce hiding places. Planting a diverse garden can also increase habitat for woolly aphid predators!  Hoverflies, parasitic wasps, lady beetles and lace wings are all great friends in the garden to help you keep woolly aphids under control. 

Of course, sometimes things out of our control can result in large numbers which can affect your apple trees. To treat woolly aphids, spray with Yates Nature's Way Citrus & Ornamental Spray. For more info, click here:
