Virginia Creeper Insects, Whiteflies?

Anonymous added on September 7, 2016 | Answered

I have a beautiful VC. This year it turned brown in late summer. If I shake it, bugs fly everywhere. And the sound is horrible. It is over my fish pond and fountain. If I cut it back very low, will the bugs leave? After winter will it be healthy? Please advise. Thank you

You can cut the plant back but I would treat with Neem Oil.
Do this weekly until the fall. This will take care of insects and fungus issues and is safe for people, pets and beneficial bugs.
