Aphids - Leaf Miners – Leaf Rollers

Damage:

Large populations can cause significant damage and eventually even kill the tree. They can also produce large quantities of a sticky liquid known as honeydew which attracts ants. Now you have two problems! Also, aphids can cause mold growth and some aphid species inject a toxin into plants which further distorts growth. Aphids may transmit viruses from plant to plant on certain vegetables and ornamental plants.

Detection and Treatment:

Once again we use an eco-friendly product:

Aphids are small, soft-bodied insects with long, slender mouth parts that they use to pierce stems, leaves, and other tender plant parts and suck out plant fluids. Many aphid species are difficult to distinguish; however, identifying species is not necessary to control them in most situations. Treatment is most likely chemical. Reduced-risk products can be used for Aphids and leaf miners.
