Cutter bees on tecoma stans?

lakusterApril 24, 2013

My tecoma stans has lots of these little round cut-outs in the leaves - much like cutter bees leave on my rose bush. Is this harmful? Anything I should do?

Yes, cutter bees. Nothing to do about them.

They don't harm the plants, and they are excellent pollinators.
