Answer: Hi Robert,

At this time of year there are of moths laying eggs and consequently lots of caterpillars feeding on our crops. Snails & Slugs are also busy at this time of the year.

To control caterpillars, we would recommendn that you use Success Naturalyte Insect Control or Yates Caterpillar Killer, Dipel.

For snail control, products such as Blitzem Snail & Slug Pellets or Baysol can be used.

With regard to the leaves on your passionfruit vine, again check for caterpillar or other creatures such as possums.
