Citrus Gall Wasps

Posted on November 01, 2018
Citrus Gall Wasp native to Queensland and northern New South Wales has made its presence in Perth. The wasps are so small that their presence isn't known until the galls form (the wasp's pupal chambers). Removing the galls as they appear, bagging, solarising and binning them, deep burying them, burning or mulching is the best way to control this wasp. As the wasp will possibly be on any citrus trees, remaining vigilant will minimise their spread. For further information please see the links below;
