Dear Members,


The Department of Agriculture will be releasing biological control on Queen of the Night (Nagblom) on the 7th October 2015.

Queen of the Night is a Category 1 declared weed, we have had great success with our biological program even if it takes a long time to kill the plant. Once the plant has been infested with the mealie bug you cannot receive a Directive.


Please let me know if you have any on your property, if you are working you may have to show me before hand so I can accompany them.


Kind regards


Joan-Louise du Toit
