Project Description

Fungus disease causing blighting of twigs, development of cankers on stems and drying of leaves which cling to stems. Tiny yellow, spindle-shaped larvae and dark brown to black adults (with a bright red band) can be sufficiently damaging to give privet a grayish/dusty appearance. Close-up, the foliage looks flecked or stippled.  Spray treatments recommended.  (no image available)
