New Growth

My Eucalyptus leucoxylon, the only one of my eucalypts to survive the water-logged soil, has started growing again. That's a relief, but it hasn't taken long for the insect world to find the new growth:
Probably sawfly larvae, species unidentified.


  1. yep sawfly larvae, but only young ones far i think.
    In the words of the Good Doctor "ExterminateExterminateExterminate"!! If you don't do it no one else will, the birds leave them alone as they spit. I got most of mine last year.

  2. missed one word in the first row - should read "so far i think".
