silver birch leaf problem

Posted: 28/05/2014 at 12:58

I wonder if that's some sort of leaf miner, it looks as though the inside green bits have gone but the outside is still intact. I doubt if the fly is doing it but its larvae might be.

Might be worth looking at the Forestry commission site, they have a pests and diseases section, or they did have when I last looked.

We could do mini profiles on here

I live near Peterborough and have a large garden that's a bit of a wilderness. I grow native and hardy plants and have a great interest in wildlife.

ID help please

I think that's what it is. Looks a bit like the one called Firefly but there may be lots that look like that

stop spraying. there's an endless supply of aphids and you'll be killing their predators as well

I don't think they're that closely related but if they are it will be their decendents that are weird mutants.
