Hello everybody. I stay in northern California, the place some small critter — presumably a “bug” of some type — has been munching away at my white sapotes’ leaves, particularly however not fully the brand new development. The small timber are vigorous and attempting diligently to get larger, however this pest is hindering progress. I wish to determine the offender and care for it, hopefully with out having to make use of chemical merchandise. I initially suspected this was earwigs, however after setting out baited oil-and-soy-sauce traps, which have labored properly prior to now, however getting no earwigs, I ponder if one thing else could be at work. That stated, it’d very properly be earwigs as they’ve been problematic in my yard earlier than.
