Hi Dave i inspected all our trees today and every single one is effected ,as I said all the new end growth is dried and shriveled or has this little green monster inside  the curled leaf ,if it was just leaves ok but every tip cream crackered im annoyed , more daily inspections from now on and squiges a plenty. The wash liquid and garlic spray this time  no good ,and such damage from such a tiny caterpillar , its War.
