What's eating the leaves off my new Tahitian lime?
We do have possums in the area and I did spray for "bugs" when I first noticed it, but, it didnt help!
Possums will decimate a tree quickly but so will the citrus butterfly larvae. The caterpillar can consume a considerable amount and can cause extreme damage to a small tree. Apply Dipel to control this beastie.
For possums, Yates has a wonderful new product available - Yates Possum Repellent Spray helps protect your precious plants by deterring possums from browsing on sprayed plants.
Contains a special combination of ingredients that help reduce possums browsing on plants.
Lasts for up to 7 days or more with regular re-treatment.
Can be used on ornamental and edible plants and has only a 1 day withholding period.
The formulation was developed by Professor Lynne Selwood and is protected by a patent granted to the University of Melbourne.
