    Pest Profile

    • Symptoms & Diagnosis

      Pattern of damage

      Small round red spots develop, which then spread across the leaves and merge together. With heavy infections, the leaves roll up and wither. The fruit are not infected, but harvest losses are caused by the weakening of infected plants.

      Treatment

      Combat

      Infected leaves must be trimmed and removed; at best they should be burned.
