infested with moths
have several thuja trees which are infested with moths in a cocoon.
Could you please tell me the best method to eliminate these pests?
is the conifer bag moth. It doesn't do too much damage and can be
controlled by spraying with an insecticide such as Maldison or Orthene.
Conifers also get attacked
by mites which can be controlled with Mavrik which kills other insects
as well but is safe to use when bees are around.
