Citrus Tree Pest


About half the little dwarf Washington Navel tree has been affected by something eating the leaves. I searched but couldn’t find anything, I suspected Weevils. Last night I went out with a torch and found a few culprits.


Really tiny snails. I’m not sure what to do about them other than squashing the ones I find. They’re so tiny I can’t believe they make their way up from the pot each night so putting snail bait on the potting mix would be pointless. So far I’ve found about 8 tiny snails and 1 big one.
