During the week I inspected by Tropical Beauty apple tree to find it infested with tiny green beetles.
I checked out this book to see if I could discover what type of infestation I was dealing with. From my reading I at first thought it could be the Apple Dimpling Bug. However, when I checked the internet it became apparent that I could be dealing with a different critter, as the beetle I am dealing with doesn't look like the Apple Dimpling Bug.
After several hours spent researching on the internet looking at image after image of beetles I still cannot identify what I have on my tree.
Because I cannot identify what it is I don't know what to do about the infestation. I decided to shake them off into this jar. A short while later one of the local kookaburras came down and perched next to the jar in order to have a good look at the beetles.
If anyone has any ideas as to what beetles might be, please do share.
