The pear and cherry slug can become a blight on pear and cherry trees—as the name suggests.
These little black pests chew the leaves, making them curl and wither.
They can really impact a tree’s health.
In this situation, most gardeners turn to either chemicals or natural sprays, but here is another solution: wood ashes.
Pear and cherry slugs are very moist, and the ashes dehydrates them, quickly killing these pests. The ashes also provides minerals for your trees and other plants. Sprinkle this on your trees several times a year, and enjoy your harvest of healthy fruit!
