Leek moths

The Content Of The Article:


The yellowish-white caterpillars of the leek moth eat long courses in the leek leaves, which continue to the heart of the plant. Especially in May and July / August the animals are active. The moths themselves are 16 to 18 millimeters small, brown-gray and nocturnal. In addition to leek, onions are also attacked by the leek moth.


Preventive: Protect leeks from planting until just before harvest with vegetable fly nets. Mixed culture with carrots or celery. Direct defense: examine the leeks for caterpillars and eggs and collect them. Cut off affected leaves as soon as possible. The use of pesticides is usually not necessary.
