Project Description

Lace Bug Nymphs

Piercing-sucking insect that causes stippled, yellowish to silverish leaves with brownish black “varnish” spots on undersides. Damage is most severe on plants in full sun. Heavily damaged leaves become blanched and yellowish grey and may drop from the plant. This often results in some dieback of twigs and branches and a reduction in flowering the following spring. Spray treatments recommended.
