Observations in the Field:

Spider Mites in Herndon, VA

spider mite damage herndon va

June 17, 2019 – I spotted these tiny pests on an Emerald Green Arborvitae in Herndon, Virginia, slowly browning out the green growth. Spider mites can be very difficult to detect thanks to their minuscule size. They feed on plants, causing them to yellow or brown. Severe infestations can lead to significant damage or death for the plant. Contact your local SavATree arborist to have your shrubs and trees inspected for pests like this regularly! 

Azalea Lace Bug

June 3, 2019 – Another infestation spotted here in Virginia. The lace bug feeds on an azalea on one of our clients’ properties. This pest lives and feeds on the underside of leaves. They can cause irreversible damage to trees and plants. It is important to address this issue immediately. Contact your local SavATree arborist to schedule a free assessment of your plants and trees. 

White Prunicola Scale Infestation

June 3, 2019 – This White Prunicola Scale was found on a Cherry Laurel on one of our clients’ properties here in Northern Virginia. Pests like these can severely damage plants to the point where removal may be required. Protect the precious plant life on your property with the help of a certified arborist. Contact SavATree today!

Tulip Poplar Aphid Aggravation 

Herndon VA Tree Service

May 22, 2019 – The tiny white bugs pictured above can be much more destructive than you may think. These are aphids and, in this photo, they are feeding on a tulip poplar leaf. This is a major cause of aggravation with our clients right now. Aphids can yellow leaves in small groups and, in larger groups, can turn them completely brown and cause them to fall off the tree. Don’t let this happen to your treasured trees. Contact your local SavATree arborist and we can help detect the problem before it’s too late!
