ID insects skeletonizing cherry leaves
Can anyone help?
My 15 ft sweet cherry tree has a parasite that is nearly skeletonizing the leaves. I say nearly since each is not left with just the ribs, but you see the whole leaf. Some spots do have holes but some spots are just see through, lacey and brown crunchy. I found what looked like a pale yellow spider ~ 1/8 inch at many of the edges of holes. The university extension thinks it might be white apple leaf hopper. After looking again I DO think the beasties only have 6 legs -man they are teeny! But the damage is not the kind that the leafhoppers do - sucking juices I read. And they don't seem to have wings.
Thinking maybe these yellow things were preying on something else, I looked for other things - mites, etc. & found nothing. I have seen a few Japanese beetles in yard but not on this tree. Suggestions are appreciated!
