Did you know?
Many homeowners facing declining azalea bushes comment on a “fungus-like” growth on the bark. However, this growth, while it may appear to look like a fungus or mold, is actually an insect called azalea bark scale. The azalea bark scale can be commonly found on species of azalea, rhododendron, andromeda, hawthorn, poplar, and willow.
Maintenance, hydration, and chemical treatments can all help to prevent and control azalea bark outbreaks. While some homeowners attempt to treat their withering azaleas with fertilizer, over fertilizing can make an insect infestation worse. Since azalea bark scales can be life-threatening to your plants, consulting a professional arborist like Eric’s Tree Service is the best way to ensure the longevity of your plants and to regain control of an insect outbreak.
