OAK - apple galls, caused by the Oak Apple Gall wasp
UK
Biorhiza pallida
The oak apple gall wasp (Biorhiza pallida) lays her eggs in a leaf bud. Chemicals are then produced by the larvae, which makes the tree tissues grow in a very specific way. An apple-like growth is formed, within which there is approximately 30 chambers, each with a larva inside. The adults emerge in June / July.
