Cherry Trees

Help Identify This Potential 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..

If you can include a picture then it will be very helpful. It almost sounds like you are describing a mantis, which are very beneficial to plants.
