rolled grape leafs
I planted a few bushes of grape this year. They started very good and are about three feet tall, but a few days ago I noticed the leafs started to roll inside. I don't see any sign of insects. What can be the problem? Thank you, Ludmila

Thanks for writing. It sounds like grape leaf roller --- a brown moth whose caterpillars roll up the grape leaves. Unfortunately, they're tough to fight off because the caterpillars hide in the leaves and are defended from most sprays.

If it's just a few leaves, your best bet is to pick them off and throw them in the trash.
