I've spotted little eggs on one or two of the trees over the months and promptly decided to spray them with a mixture of rain-guard, liquid copper, fish emulsion (to amongst others also deter rabbits and possums) and Yates Conqueror spraying oil. Also found some evidence of roller leaf caterpillars which can apparently be quite a pest. I've sprayed three times, having no effect whatsoever on either of the pests. Now when I spot the eggs or worm "nests", I just remove it by hand.
