How To Remove Insects From Viburnum Leaves

Question From: North Ridgeville, Ohio, United States
Q: how to stop my viberums from insects on the leaves I had them for 10 years just got the insects last 2 years ten feet tall I love them I don't what to lose them tom

A: It's probably Viburnum beetle. The larvae attack in spring, pupate in the soil and return in summer as an adult beetle. I would use a systemic pesticide, such as Bayer Tree and Shrub Insect Control according to package directions. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
