Question of the Week – Crepe Myrtle and Aphids

Posted by romeethredge on July 17, 2015

Yes, last week I had a photo of a Crepe Myrtle tree. Dusty Smith, Seminole County Ag teacher, answered correctly and he also knew that aphids are often the problem with them causing sticky honeydew and black sooty mold in the bottom of the canopy.

Here’s a link to a good UGA publication concerning growing Crepe Myrtles.


Here’s this week’s question.  What is this I found on some peanut leaves this week and why are some of the “caps” off? Is this a good or bad thing to find these?
