Allantus luctiferfruit tree pest, tree pest
Tenthredinidae is recorded as a pest but there is only few information about it. However, I found an allantus luctifer on an apricot tree fortunately I could record its life cycle. Sawfly is not easy to raise. I found a parasitic bee while raising a sawfly but I could not confirm it.
