Macadamia flower caterpillar

    2 responses

Hi guys last year over 90 percent of my macadamia flowers were destroyed by caterpillars. It seems the commercial growers use pretty strong pesticides to control these. Some of these are even restricted to use without a license. Is there a less toxic alternative or even something that can be purchased off the shelf at a hardware store that is effective? I would love some nuts this year! Thanks.
