Cherry Trees

Help Identify This Pest!!

dkamarinos added on February 21, 2018 | Answered

This insect is slender and is well camouflaged as it tucks it's body tightly on a twig.. I've found one on one of my crabapples, two on my cherries, and one on my crape myrtle. The insect is always in close proximity to a cocoon-like structure which I think is where the pupae/eggs are. Please help me identify, I have yet not been able to locate it by doing research..

I see. I can't tell what it is. It does not look harmful to plants. In fact, it looks like a predator. Unless they are doing damage to the plants, I would leave them. They might be doing you a favor by eating other bad insects.
