Watch for worm in currants

I thank the Cooperative Extension Service for good advice. As soon as I described the sad condition of my gooseberry bush, Darren Snyder, back again in the Fair booth, handed me a paper about the “Imported Currant -Worm.” It devastated my erstwhile thriving bush, “seemingly overnight,” and Darren said, “It travels.” Anyone who has currants and gooseberries may get more information at email: ledworshak@alaska.edu.
