Elaeagnus Plants
Q.

large elaeagnus 15′ by 10′ some leaves yellowing then turning brown and curl

Many insects on plant, possiby scale and aphids. Will bark be infested too? Can I use it to grow honeysuckle on if leaves fall off?  Don't wish to use chemicals, organic solution will not work. Tearing my hair out, please help.

I would recommend neem oil. It is organic and natural and is very effective at treating these pest. It gets in the planta nd makes the plant lethal to these kinds of plants.

Any pests that are attacking the elaeagnus can move on to plants planted nearby. It is best to treat it.
