Prepare for the next garden layer of 2019! Small insects that have branches in & # 39; white fibrous packaging & # 39; Covering eggs while laying eggs must be discovered by Royal Horticultural Society

  • The cotton fibrous dish was spotted on a magnolia tree in Berkshire
  • It is thought that the plague began to bloom in English conditions after being imported
  • RHS says it is found on magnolia's, mulberry trees, elderly, plane trees and dogwoods

A small insect that lays a series of eggs around the branches of a plant has been identified as the first new garden infestation for 2019.

The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) said that the cotton fibrous dish was spotted on a magnolia in Berkshire.

It is thought that the plague began to bloom in English conditions after being imported.

Experts claim that the host plant is not affected by the presence of the animal, except that it is rendered unsightly by the mass of eggs.

At the moment it is not thought that it causes any problems for the host plant outside the unsightliness of the egg masses.

The eggs look like a white packaging around the branches, say the horticultural experts.

If gardeners can not bear the appearance of the animals on their trees and shrubs, they can remove them with a stiff brush and water.

The RHS has also appealed to gardeners who find the plague to inform them.

It hopes to get a picture of the plants it is found on, with magnolia's, mulberries, elderly, plane trees and dogwoods that are thought to be favorites.

Gerard Clover, head of plant health at the RHS, said: "The cotton fibrous shell is the first new plague that was discovered by the RHS in 2019.

• On average, four are found each year, but global trade in plants exacerbates the spread of pests and diseases, and gardeners must be alert to changes and maintain good plant health.

& # 39; Unlike some other pests we expect to find, the scale insect causes little to no damage to the plant, but will undoubtedly cause concern to gardeners.

& # 39; Despite its strange appearance, it may well be overlooked and become more common than we think. & # 39;

HOW DO YOU STOP THE MOTHS TO STAKE YOUR HOME?

English Heritage has prepared a guide for the prevention of moth infestations based on 20 years of experience in protecting historical collections against insect pests.

The best tips for preventing moth infestation are:

– Check for moths in the folds, folds and behind labels of clothing

– Store your items in vacuum bags to prevent clothes moth from reaching them

– Remove objects from the cupboard and shake them at least once a month to disturb the moths

– If that does not work, you make your wardrobe safer for clothes that you do not wear regularly

– Moths hide in dark and hidden areas, so vacuum every corner and hole, including the inner cabinets, when you clean the house

– Do not buy second-hand furniture, clothing and upholstery, as these can contain moths or their larvae

– Moths such as warm spaces: switch off the radiators in your house as soon as it gets warm in the summer and open all windows regularly to allow air to circulate
