Crape Myrtle Bark Scale

Do you Crape Myrtles appear dark in color or have visible white bugs all over them? If so, you're not alone! In recent years these invasive pests have made their way to trees all over the mid south. They suck the sap from Crape Myrtles and excrete honeydew, in which the black sooty mold grows on. This mold blocks sunlight and alters the efficiency of photosynthesis of the plant which can cause die back of branches, and not to mention how unsightly it is!

At Timberline, we've had fantastic results by applying an insecticide at certain intervals to deter this unwanted pest. If you've tried everything, or simply don't have the time, please give us a call for your free estimate!
