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.

I’m a sister, wife, mother, grandmother, auntie and friend. I prefer to be outside and am interested in photography, nature and different cultures. I believe everything on this earth has a right to be here but some things and some people would be happiest if their space was far away from mine. (Flies and biting bugs take note!) I don’t like housework and think dust is Nature’s way of saying, “This is my space, I was here first.”
