What are Sawfly Larvae?  

Although they are related to wasps, sawflies cannot elicit a sting. Sawflies are noted for the large, tightly packed clusters of larvae that can be seen clinging to stems or branches of gum trees during the daytime.

 

Symptoms

Sawflies can defoliate young saplings and smaller eucalypts.
