Q.Oleander Tree Ravaged By Caterpillars

Zone Tampa, Florida | sttmichalik added on July 25, 2022 | Answered

Just noticed my oleander tree has been ravaged by caterpillars. I have removed the caterpillars, but most of the leaves are already gone, with the spines of the leafs intact. Will the leaves grow back? Do you recommend i leave the plant as is, or do some serious pruning to encourage new growth? Thanks,

I would leave it as is, until it recovers! This article will help with the control of these pesky creatures:
