Hi everyone,

I'm quite new to the gardening although have been doing some work around our small garden in the residential estate for over 5 years now and it starts looking really nice, but I continue having some problems with Apple and Pear trees, which I have planted in our garden.

What I've noticed this year on our Apple tree is the tiny red insects - please see attached images.
Could anyone identify what these are and perhaps give some advice on how to deter them?

I've been using ladybird larves, but for some reason when they turn into adult, they seem to go elsewhere.
We have lots of aphids on our flowers, roses and other plants - just can't get ladybirds to visit.

Also - our pear tree seem to be getting red spots on the leaves and some white insects - again please see attached images.

Could someone advice on some remedies to these and what these actually are?
