Capsids


Image of Capsids

Description

There are many types of capsid bug and there are many species. Some are sap-sucking pests that feed in shoot tips, and flower buds.

Symptoms

Signs of damage are visible from May to early September when young leaves near the shoot tip open up misshapen. Affected leaves may have multiple small, brown-edged holes or tears. Affected flower buds may fail to develop or, some cases, flowers will develop with irregular or distorted heads.

What next...

Now you know what the problem is, and the damage it is doing, don't let your plant suffer.
