The Q&A Archives: Curled and "Glued" Blueberry Leaves

Question: I noticed the leaves on some of my bushes are curled and seem stuck together. I noticed a caterpiller, similar to the tent caterpiller, that had eaten off some of the leaves and I destroyed it. I tried uncurling the leaves and they are definitely fastened at some spots.

Answer: You may be seeing an infestation of blueberry leaftiers, which could result in symptoms similar to what you are describing. You might wish to take a sample to your County Extension (694-1594) for a definite identification and the most up to date suggested controls in your area.
