Q.Pests on Gooseberries

Anonymous added on August 24, 2011 | Answered

I have just purchased a nice gooseberry bush but found two green caterpillars and maybe more eating the foliage. Can you advise me on what insect spray would be the best, and any other advice you can help me with? Never grew one before, so a bit of a learner who loves gooseberries.

Regardless of the type, all caterpillars are treated the same. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/insects/prevent-caterpillars.htm

Neem oil may also be effective. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/pesticides/neem-oil-uses.htm
