why are my pear tree leaves like skeletons
My pear trees are infested with small leech like slimy caterpillars. They are about 2 centimetres long, dark brown and sort of tranparent slimy looking with lots of little legs. They suck all the sap out of the leaves which turn brown and dead looking. There are thousands of these wormy things and I don't like to spary as the trees laden with pears. I live in Jersey and have never seen anything like them before.
