Fig Leaf Beetle
What’s chewing the leaves on my fig tree?
The Fig Leaf beetle defoliates Port Jackson figs (Ficus rubiginosa) at a rapid rate. The larvae and adult fig beetle feed on the surface of the leaves causing the leaves to curl, shrivel and fall from the tree.
Preventative and curative control is possible with either tree injection methods or tablet form. The products are designed by tree care professionals and university researchers specifically for managing and controlling the insect pests threatening our natural and urban forests.
