Blueberry Bush Pests

Anonymous added on March 27, 2014 | Answered

We planted several blueberry bushes in late fall. They are doing well and are showing signs of life. They do have limbs on the ground beneath them and all around them. They appear to have been snipped or cut off at a slight angle. They are too high off the ground for a rabbit to have chewed them off. We considered deer, but there are not any tracks in soft dirt. It is various sizes of limbs off. They do not appear to have been chewed but are flat on the end with a very neat line of the cut. What could have happened to the limbs? How can we treat?

It may be twig blight. It does start about this time of year. This article will help: http://ipm.ncsu.edu/small_fruit/twigblt.html
