Hi Sarah,

If the insects are cup moths or the black spitfires(Perga sp) or the larvae of Eucalyptus chrysomelid beetle then Yates Success Ultra is effective against these pests when sprayed on the foliage. Yates Success Ultra contains spinosad which is derived from a naturally occurring soil bacteria.
