Leaf Roller in New FIlberts

Here are some pictures of potential damage from leaf rollers in new planted filberts.

Leaf feeding.

New growth curling due to damage to the stem.

Newest bud severed by feeding on the stem just below it.

Leaf rolling and new growth damaged.

Leaf damage and new growth damaged.

You can see the leaf roller worm right about in the center of that last picture. (You'll also notice what I believe to be a sweat bee, no concern to the filberts.) The worst damage the leaf rollers do is sever the new growth as you can see in a couple of these pictures.

If you notice any damage at all in your new filbert planting please talk with your CPS fieldman.
