Below are common trees and related pests we see throughout NC that are treated through the ArborWISE program.  

  • Crepe myrtle trees
    • Japanese beetles and aphids can become an issue in the spring and summer months. However, treatment should start in early fall for the following spring and summer months. 
  • Azaleas
    • Azaleas only bloom for a few weeks out of the year. Don't let Lace bugs attack those beautiful blooms. Want to learn more about your azaleas read more here
  • Red maple trees
    • Gloomy scale is easily spotted by the discolored marks it leaves on trees. 
  • Willow trees and water oaks
    • Lecanium scale typically is found on water oaks and willow oaks and shows up as discolored bark. 
  • Ash trees
    • The Emerald ash borer (EAB) is attacking ash trees across the Carolinas. Don't leave your ash trees unprepared for this pest. 
  • Leland Cypress trees
    • Bagworm, seiridium canker, and box canker all show up in cypress trees as dying or brown needles. If your leland cypress is showing brown needles, a pest or drought could be the culprit, 
  • Boxwood trees 
    • Leaf miner and spider mites are small but can leave large amount of damage. 
  • Camellia trees 
    • Tea scale and cottony camellia scale is found heavily among camellia trees.
