|Apologies. I have moved this to the pest forum. |
Does anyone know how to cope with Brithys crini (Lily Borer, Crinum Borer)? It is is a moth of the Noctuidae. It is found in different parts of the world and is supposedly native to Queensland and the Northern Territory in Australia. But I wonder if it is actually introduced here.

|I have seen this type of damage on a few of mine but the culprit turned out to be common cutworms and well fed cutworms at that.|

|This thread was transferred to Pests and Disease forum. From which the following was taken:|
Gleni said:I have solved my Brithys moth problem at last. I used Yates SUCCESS. Naturalyte Insect Control. Active constituent Spinosad. Apparently, "Spinosad has translaminar movement, which means it moves into the leaf." And Brithys's cats are usually under the epidermis having a wonderful time.
