Lychee pest control

    3 responses

Joe @ Sydney starts with ...
Hi,
I am seeking advise on how to control the pests that annually attack my Lychee fruit, as pictured. There seems to be two types of bugs, one attacking the nut and another (i suspect fruit fly) attacking the flesh.
I have tried fruit fly baits and traps to virtually no effect.
Appreciate any advise or tips, especially if less toxic options are available.

Hi Joe,

If you don't want chemical spray or less toxic, then the best way is using the mesh bags. I am using it to stop the fruit fly. You can buy it from eBay. Check the size that you need. Cheers

Hello Joe...
it’s important to put those pests under control even before the reproduction starts as they tend to move slowly, and pest control at the beginning can be relatively easy.
