|Galls are the result of the abnormal growth of plant cells. They are caused by the feeding insects, usually mites. The adults are really difficult to control with sprays because they fly around and the timing of the spray has to be perfect. Since most galls and gall-forming insects are not a threat to plant health, attempts to suppress them are not usually warranted. You can cut away the galls if you find them unattractive.
