What is attacking my fruiting Cherry?
New growth on my fruiting cherry is affected by a leaf-curl bug and eventually withers. The bug is nearly 1 cm long, with the head and thorax of a beetle, but the abdomen of a caterpillar (i.e., soft) with orange and black hoops. Can't find it mentioned in any books. The tree has borne very little fruit since being affected. Could there be a connection?
