can anyone tell me what is wrong with my plums?
They have what look like brown eggs in the middle of the plum and I have seen ants & maggots inside also.
looks like the whole crop is infested.Any ideas please.
Those may not be eggs-this is a possibility/probability
The ants are just feeding on the sugars
Thanks so much. It looks like it is plum moth! picture is exactly as seen on our plums.
You may (or may not) wish to know that those 'brown eggs' are in fact the faeces of the plum moth caterpillar.
maybe try a grease band around the stump next winter.
