Home gardeners frequently see insect pests and diseases affecting their fruit trees. Usually they would have seen them in previous seasons, so the pests or diseases look familiar. However, there are occasions, when an unusual pest (not native to Western Australia) can occur. These exotic pests are a concern for the farming community, as they could threaten the agricultural and horticultural industries and increase the price of production and the cost to the consumer.
This bulletin describes the most common insect pests and diseases on fruit trees in home gardens.
