Marcus -  no option will be off the table in the war against insect
insurgents who are burrowing into the fabric of our foliar society. This
is a war that we must and will win to preserve of freedom and
necromancy.

Why not use a hormone implant to delay leaf production? Why not strip
the laeves? Why not use a chemical defoliant like Agent Orange? Sorry it
is Friday

Dear all,

Has anyone considered a control method of crown lifting to scupper
chances of adult moths accessing foliage in lower crown?

Obviously this would not be practical in all cases, but may be worth
experimenting with, perhaps on individual trees where they are quite
some distance from other HC's.

Another idea is the sticky bark covers as seen on fruit trees.

Any views appreciated in advance.

Thanks.
