Time to prune your lemon and lime tree or a wasp will attack as Ross and John found out

A group of lemon-loving locals have stepped up their fight against the native gall wasp, launching a campaign asking Melburnians to Prune in June

Kaye Roberts-Palmer, co-founder of Save Our Citrus, says there is a plague of the wasps across Melbourne because the critters have no known natural predators here.  

‘If it runs a muck in Melbourne we are going to lose all our citrus trees over the next few years, ‘ she said. 

Her group Save Our Citrus is spreading the word for people to prune this month to get rid of the wasp.
