The Q&A Archives: How to treat my tree ( Cyprus)?

Question: I would like to know proper pestcide name to treat my tree(cyprus). Now bugs(catipiller) with leaves dominate my tree and tree becomes yellow. Please let me know pesticide name.

Answer: Unfortunately, based on your description I am not certain what insect is bothering your tree. It might be bagworm, if the caterpillars are making little bags out of the foliage and then hang on the tree. But you must have a definite identification of the pest before you can determine how to treat it.

I strongly recommend you consult with your state extension service to specifically identify both the plant and the pest. Based on knowing that, they can give you the most up to date information on what to use and how/when to use it for best results.
