burning bush disease or pest
My 3 year old burning bush is about 2 feet tall. This afternoon I saw what looked like tiny, EVER SO TINY,black bugs. I did not see any of them move they were so tiny. Anyhow, they were predominately on the new growth, concentrated at the ends of the stems and under some leaves. I noticed them because it looked like the stems were sticky and wilted. I also saw ladybugs on the plant. I cut off as much as I could but the plant is lush and full so I could not get to a lot of the problem. What do I spray them with?? and what do you think it is? The plant is next to my beautiful rose bush and I am afraid it will be under attack also. Sorry, I don't know how to get any pictures to Thanks for reading this. Suzanne

The Lady Bugs were likely feeding on the bad insects.
Treat the plant with Neem Oil which is safe for people, pets and bees.
