OFM not supposed to be here
But it clearly is. I found damage to my plums that can't really be anything else.
The state extension service monitors the usual pests, and they don't report any sightings of OFM in northern IL. Trusting them, I didn't do anything about the possibility. And of course, with no reports or biofix, I wouldn't have been prepared to.
Fortunately ??? the Japanese beetles showed up, so maybe the spray I applied for them will have done some good agains the other pest.
But it would have been nice to know before I saw the damage to my fruit.
