Holly Berry Midge Pests Removal?

popplecove63 added on July 30, 2014 | Answered

My once beautiful Holly bush has green berries. Is there any insecticide like the rose midge has to use? And if I remove all the berries, will it be healthy. How to prevent reinfestation?

There is no known chemical treatment against the midge. If you clean up and destroy all the berries that fall, and any you can get off the tree, you would go a long way to controlling the infestation. http://www.upenn.edu/paflora/plantclinic/hollyberrymidge.htm
