Thank you!

Have you seen this guy out in the San Juans?

This plum was bought potted from a nursery. Since it pupates in the soil, I'm wondering if it came with the plum. Haven't seen it on any of my other fruit trees...yet.

Yes, but I believe only one time. You would think a soap spray would take care of these guys.
