Twist currant leavesTwisted leaves on the currant can be a sign of damage to aphids, a leafworm or a viral infection. To clarify the diagnosis should carefully inspect the leaves for pests, if you do not find them, be sure to spray the plant with an antiviral drug. If insects have been found, it is necessary to start fighting with them. We will describe pests and what to do if the currant leaves curl.

The pest of aphids

When infecting currants with any of the aphid species, one of the signs is twisted leaves. It is quite easy to find them, just look at the underside of the leaves and you will see a large number of small insects. It feeds on aphids with deciduous juice, so the currant leaves twist and dry up. Often when these pests invade Currant leaves turn yellow Before drying.

Fight these pests in several stages:

  1. A solution of nitrafen, which is sprayed with plants in the early spring before budding, is used against egg layings.
  2. Destruction of aphids occurs before and after flowering with carbophos.
  3. A soap solution is used to control adult insects.

Keep in mind if you notice a large number of ants on the currant, this indicates that it was "captured" by the gooseberry shoot aphid. In this case it is necessary to eradicate not only the aphids, but also to get rid of the ants as soon as possible.

Pest Currant Torturer

Finding out the green moving caterpillars in the leaves, you know, you're dealing with a leaf roller. At mass reproduction this pest can destroy up to 80% of currant leaves. Recognize them is quite simple: after their visits are left unified or folded into the tube leaves.

The leaf roll has several stages of development, so if you notice butterflies that are colored in light brown tones, yellowish-green flat eggs, dirty yellow and bright green caterpillars, treat immediately.

The fight against leaf rollers consists in spraying the plants with carbophos before flowering and after picking berries. However, keep in mind that during spraying, the poison does not fall into twisted leaves, so they must be cut off and burned outside the site.

Thus, if you find twisted leaves on bushes of currant, do not pass by - inspect the plant for pest infestations, then immediately start destroying the detected insects. Otherwise, soon you run the risk of being left without a crop.
