Cydalima perspectalis - eats my box tree bushes

Hello, did you know it? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cydalima_perspectalis

I was very shocked yesterday, I did see first time in my life the "Cydalima perspectalis" ropes, they are are very bad, because the have no (seldom) enemies in europe and so the population is rising and rising :cry:
So I did killed maybe 100 - in 2 days - ropes by collecting by hand - and after that mixed water with oil & vinegar & detergent - and I did sprayed and collected again.

Thats golobalization too :( buying cheap products from china and so on, without a good control and so we have neozoa :twisted:

More invasive species... blech! The white version of is not bad looking. Pretty but nasty to see on a plant. to me the caterpillar form looks like good fishing bait :beer: I would like to give that a try :D
In Florida we have many invasive species from walking catfish to armadillos and now the everglades seem like they are filled with pythons lol.

but there is something worse and far more insidious. The department of agriculture brought into the south from china. I am really curious if that moth fed on the Kudzu. The plant that ate the South :shock: :)
