Pigeons  -  attack a wide range of plants, but seem particularly keen on the leaves of brassicas (such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbages and cauliflower), cherries, and peas.


  • Leaves will be ripped leaving only the centre stalk behind.
  • Plants look like skeletons and no crop will be produced.
  • Heavy pigeon grazing will prevent pea development.
  • Pigeons also eat the fruit of cherries and currants.

Butterflies  -  adult butterflies do not cause any damage to plants. However, their larvae do. Butterflies can wriggle through normal bird netting.


  • Large cabbage white larvae (yellow and black patterned caterpillars) will destroy small Brassica plants and severely damage larger plants. Large infestations can often defoliate whole Brassica crops if left untreated.
  • Small cabbage white larvae (green caterpillars) feed singly and will often burrow deep into head forming Brassicas causing holes and contaminating leaves with excrement.
