The Q&A Archives: Little white worms in bushes

Question: I am currently having a pest problem with some of my bushes. They are being covered by little white worms (or at least they look like worms) and the once green leaves are turning yellow. Any suggestions on what these pests are and how I can get rid of them without harsh chemicals?

Thank you.

Answer: Unfortunately, based on your description I am not able to identify either the plant or the pest. I would suggest you consult with your local Rutgers cooperative extension to get a specific identification of the problem. Based on knowing that, they should be able to make suggestions on what to do, including recommending the least toxic control possible. I'm sorry I can't be more specific for you.
