Citrus Gall Wasp Control in Your Garden

Bruchophagus fellis

Citrus Gall Wasp (Bruchophagus fellis) is an insect native to the coastal regions of south-east Queensland and north-eastern New South Wales. Its native host is the Australian Finger Lime, Citrus australasica.

Over the last century, it has taken a liking to cultivated Citrus and has spread well out of its native range. It is now found across southern Australia, all the way into south-west Western Australia.

The Citrus Gall Wasp itself is a tiny insect that is not usually seen. What you will see are the woody galls that grow in response to the feeding of Citrus Gall Wasp larvae.
