The Issue

Sawflies resemble caterpillars at immature stages but are actually more closely related to wasps and bees. Their name is derived from the saw-like ovipositor the adult female uses to lay eggs. Adult sawflies are similar to wasps but do not sting.

Signs of Sawflies

Sawflies often feed in groups and can quickly defoliate and devour an entire host plant in a matter of days. There are many different species of sawflies and each prefers specific plants or groups of related plants which includes both shrubs and trees.

The Solution

A foliar treatment is most effective at controlling sawflies. Timing is critical as they can do significant damage in a short amount of time.
