Tiny Snails!!

A few of you who have been following my tree exploits for a while will know I had issues with pest attack on some of my maples last year over the Winter months. A strange time for this to happen. I was surprised as I always spray before I tuck trees away for the Winter.

While inspecting my maples this year at this stage I found that many of them have a little cone shaped Snail tucked away under loose bark or in tight spots on the trunk.

Is this the culprit?

I will spray but will this be effective when they are in shell and tucked away?

Will systemic insecticide work better?

Will this even work now during the dormant season?

Anybody else have these?

Are they even the culprit?

Who won the 1986 Sheepdog trials?

So many questions!!! 🙂

The Bane of My Life

Never seen a year like it for these buggers!!!
