Bore Holes in Trunk and Stem of Azalea


Anonymous added on April 4, 2011 | Answered

I have noticed bore holes in the trunk and stem of one of my azalea bushes. It looks like something has tunneled inside. I would like to know what might be doing it and what I can do about it. The bush currently has buds on it and I do not want to lose the bush by it dying.
