Pea problem

the Receptacle on my peas are being infested by a microscopic white grub which kills the flower. What is it and what can I do? 1122, , Co Dublin Posted: 22/03/2017

It sounds like pea moth grubs. These drill into the forming pods and feed on the peas, usually not seen until pods are picked. Try covering the plants with horticultural mesh or fleece.
