The leaves on all my cherry trees are curling and they have tiny black insects in the curling leaves. What do I use for a spray to get rid of the bugs?

    It sounds like your cherry tree is afflicted with either thrips or aphids. Regardless - the treatment is the same - insectical soaps or neem oil.
