Fig leaf curl

    3 responses

Chris2122 starts with ...
I seem to have my fig tree leaves curling upwards. It seems to be the younger leaves. I did take a closer look and found leaf hoppers, small white insects that fly around when I shake a branch. Any idea how I could get rid of these pests?
I have attached a photo of the insect also.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The tree itself looks healthy enough, fruiting well. You could try some neem based white oil to deter the leaf hoppers

I have the same problem. I took to squishing the leafhoppers. Been monitoring last few days and haven't seen them again. Hopefully that did it. Heard u can use eco pistol if you want to go down that route.

Thank you.
I have bought some neem oil from Bunnings and let’s see how we go. It seems I need to spray it a couple of time as I have done once and still have the critters around. I will need to make sure the undersides are also sprayed and continue to spray every 7 days. Not sure what eco pistol is?
