Why is there blow flies on the mandarin and orange tree? How do we get rid of them?

Answer: Hi Leanne,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Blowfly is not a typical pest for garden and will not affect the growth of the citrus tree or damage the fruits. Hence, no pesticide needed to spray the insects.

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
Yates Horticulturist
