Solomons Seal Sawfly
The first time I discovered this sawfly was last summer when we found hundreds of uniform grey caterpillars munching up the leaves of the Solomon Seal plants in the garden. Whilst the caterpillars devour the leaves, the plants always grow back again. Solomon Seal Sawfly are quite docile, weak fliers and the Swallows and House Martins making forays over the garden surely take there toll.
However, they're a harmless, child-friendly enigmatic species and despite their foliage consumption habits, we always welcome them back.
