A common pest on many plants, these sap-sucking insects are often noticed feeding in clusters on new plant growth.
Numerous species of scale insects, typically classified as soft or armored, can attack a broad array of shrubs. These pests generally appear on plants as immobile bumps with no recognizable body parts.
Caterpillars are the larvae of moths and butterflies, and like their winged metamorphoses, they come in all shapes and sizes. All species share a common appetite for plant foliage.
Mites are tiny arthropods, related to ticks. Several types of mites can be found in homes and of these a few may bite humans. Most mites are harmless predators of insects, or feeders on decaying plant material. Some pest mites feed on stored products like cheese and grain. Others are merely nuisance pests.
Black Sooty Mold
Black mildew and sooty mold are often used interchangeably though sooty mold should be used for the black mold that grows on insect excrement (honeydew) that can coat the leaves, stems, and/or fruit of plants. The mold is not parasitic but can reduce the leave's photosynthetic ability by blocking out light.
Several fungal diseases attack shrubs. Powdery mildew attacks a wide range of shrub hosts in the landscape and is characterized by a white or gray powdery growth on the leaves. Rusts are characterized by rust-colored, powdery fungal growths on various parts of the plant.
