We arrived in France to find all our box DEAD! Just to inform people who have box (buxus sempervirens) beware of the box caterpillar, these have been introduced from India into Europe and have made it into South East England and the London area, they can destroy and eat all your buxus in 10days and it’s gestation period is 3 times a year! The only way to kill them is to put pesticide on them and heavily water them 

Kills all box plants
