Triple Crown Blackberry - June Bug leaf damage

jo1991July 16, 2012

Hi all,

Here is a picture I snapped a moment ago while out taking different photos to show you all....

This is a picture of one of the plants with june bug leaf damage...this is actually a leaf with what I would call - average leaf damage....extreme leaf damage is basically a tiny spiderweb of a leaf left remaining...which I also have on some of the plants.

The june bugs arrived right as the berries where ripening - so there was no way to spray any chemicals - so my only alternative was to hang the june bug catchers - and catch june bugs I did!! I must say, they did help tremendously...I think I had 5 hanging around the perimeter of the plants.

Thanks!
