May 10, 2019 – This is Cottony Camellia Scale. Don’t let the name fool you, it can also affect hollies, yews, euonymus, sweetbox, and maple trees. These are the egg masses typically found on the underside of the leaves. Adults, which are tan and 1/8-inch long, will feed on the infected plants and produce a sticky substance called honeydew. This outbreak had it dripping from the leaves. As the honeydew sticks to the leaves, sooty mold will begin to grow. This will cover the leaves and can cause a decrease in photosynthesis. If you see cottony camellia scale, contact your SavATree arborist right away!
