    Azalea Lace Bug

There is a new pest in the pacific northwest that is hitting our azaleas and rhododendrons hard. The azalea lace bug was first seen in Oregon in 2009(Figure 1) and has been increasing its presence in the Willamette valley at an alarming rate. This ¼” pest attacks the leaves of rhodies and azaleas leaving them damaged and less able to transport nutrients and water from the leaves to the rest of the plant. Lace bug damage shows up first as small white spots on the surface of leaves(Figure 2). If untreated the lace bugs will leave your leaves completely bleached and drained of chlorophyll. A sure sign that the damage to your plant is lace bugs is their droppings, which appear as small black spots on the underside of the leaf. If you see signs of lace bugs we can help. Give us a call and we will come out, confirm your diagnosis and, if it is warranted, treat your beloved plants.
