Answer: Honeysuckle is occasionally subject to leaf blight and also fungal infections such as mildew. Honeysuckles are occasionally attacked by aphids, however these would not be seen flying around so there may not be a connection beteeen the insects and the decline. I would suggest you consult with your local county extension to obtain a specific diagnosis and based on that, decide how to proceed. If it something that can be treated, they will have the most up to date information on what to use and how/when is best to apply it. In the meantime and again this fall, to try to limit reinfection, clean up any fallen or dead leaves and put them in the trash, and do not work on the plant if it is wet with dew or rain.
