Caterpillars

How disappointing to wake up in the morning to find your tree spoilt by the leaves having been chewed up by stick-worms, vine caterpillars, the little green caterpillars which hatch when little white butterflies lay their eggs on plants or any of the numerous caterpillars which are particularily prevalent at this time of the year. The droppings usually give the uninvited guests away but sometimes it's difficult to find them for 'hand picking'.

Spray with systemic spray Fisokil or the contact poison 'Karbaspray' or 'Protekta Wurmsprey'.

Random Bonsai Tip

Use vinegar and water to remove moss but it is not as effective as using Limestone Ammonium Nitrate (LAN) and water. Be very careful not to spill any of the LAN on the roots of the bonsai tree as it may burn them and may in the worst case cause the tree to die. Carefully paint the LAN and water mix on the trunk of the bonsai tree and within days you should see the moss turn brown and die.
