  • Need some help with this creature

    I started finding these on my leaves of Browns Turkey, I take it I do not want then on my other trees. Is there something I can do to kill the little creatures if that is what it is ?

    I've seen the same on my trees and have always wondered what caused it. I'm guessing it is dried latex?

      It is just on one variety, it is on my Brown Turkey which I use for root stock and do not want to graft onto it if it is some kind virus other than FMV.

    It's crystallized sap stuff coming out from where something bit the leaf. I saw it this year with my thrips.

      I keep having to kill these little grasshoppers or Katydids what ever you want to call them maybe they are causing my problems. The only problem there is no sign of damage where this is happening.

    I have a new android upgrade which allows me to zoom in with amazing precision. I'm amazed by the results.

    Please don't kill them.

    Leaf hoppers have been doing that on my stems. They move around the stem like crabs, they can also jump a good distance. I've recently started to find them under leaves too.

      I see a lot of hoppers on my plants but not a lot of damage, yet.

        I have a Roberts Golden Rainbow that is almost 9’ tall that I started in Feb. I saw some leaf damage at the top. I got my 8 foot ladder and climbed up there and found one eating my leaves. It is in Hooper heaven now.
