fruit tree problems
« on: January 06, 2018, 19:18 »
last year i lost most of my apples and pears as woodlice had burrowed into them and stayed in them eating the fruit from the inside out. :mad:
the trunks are only say 100mm dia is there anything i can put on the trunk to stop the woodlice climbing up?
if i lost that much again this year im afriad i would end up chopping them down >:(

all help appreciated

I think the woodlice are most likely to be getting in after something else has damaged the skin first; perhaps birds, wasps or snails?
