Azalea Lace Bug Damage

Dawn Field added on December 31, 2016 | Answered

My azaleas got lace bug damage and it affected the entire plant last summer before I realized what was happening. They looked like your picture of that damage. I used an organic insecticidal and fungicidal spray all over the plants twice. Will they come back next spring?
