Diseases and pests on deciduous trees
- Weave moths: A weave covers deciduous trees in spring. There are yellowish-white caterpillars that eat the plant bare. You must remove the webs over a large area and shake off and collect the remaining caterpillars. You should put a cloth under the tree.
- Leaf spots: This fungal disease manifests itself in brown to black spots, often with a red border, which damage the plant. You have to cut off infected plant parts. But not in damp weather, otherwise the risk of infection is greater.
- Snowball beetles: These beetles cause pitting in the snowball leaves. The beetles are yellowish to light brown. The only possibility: Examine the plant for beetles from May and collect.
- Scale insects: These pests suck the plant out of the stems, veins and leaves. Honeydew can develop. Severely affected plant parts must always be cut off, otherwise you can also collect the pests.
