We have the SKIP Laurels, less than a year old, and the leaves are full of holes, what insect(s) could be doing this, and what should be used to get rid of them. Thanks

Prunus laurocerasus 'Schipkaensis', or Skip Laurel, is one of the hardiest laurels around. However, various insects can damage the foliage. It could be that the pests are already gone and no treatment is necessary. Or, they may be actively feeding now. You'll need to inspect your laurels to find the insects. Once you do, collect a few and take them into your cooperative extension office or well staffed garden center for help with identification. Then you can choose a control measure. Good luck with your laurels.
