Answer: Hi Katrina,

Thanks for contacting Yates.

They do look like thrips there on your tree. These pests can be annoying if in large numbers but can be controlled with Yates Pyrethrum.

Apply regularly to all leaf surfaces to get the best control. Don’t forget to feed your hedge well with a good dose of Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver and Plant Fertiliser every 6 weeks!

Kind regards
