Crape Myrtle Blooms Eaten by Bugs

Anonymous added on August 20, 2011 | Answered

Please advise what to do with blooms that have been eaten up/destroyed by beetles. This is late August now in Virginia, so should I remove them or just allow them to remain for the sake of the tree? This tree was planted last summer in our yard and is approximately 5-6' tall. Also, what efforts should I render now about the insects?
