Citrus Protectant Spray 500g (GALL WASP PREVENTION)

$24.95

Originally used on fruit trees to prevent sunburn on fruit, our Citrus Protectant Spray is tremendously beneficial as an organic deterrent to Citrus Gall Wasp.

A barrier film on the plant surface has been proven successful in deterring egg-laying by Citrus Gall Wasp on citrus shoots, resulting in a reduction of gall size and an abundance of fruit.

What is Citrus Gall Wasp?
Citrus Gall Wasp is a little native insect they can go unnoticed causing unrepairable bulging like damage to your citrus tree branches. The galls on the branches form in response to Citrus Gall Wasp larvae feeding inside the soft new growth of citrus branches. This results in a  tremendous amount of stress to the tree as it restricts the sap flow to the outer new growth. Allowing Citrus Gall Wasp to take over your citrus tree will reduce the capacity of fruit that the tree can provide, and the tree’s life span as a result.

The most prone citrus trees to Citrus Gall Wasp are lemon trees, followed by other common varieties including orange, grapefruit mandarin and lime.
