Emerald green has flying bugs. plant not looking good
I have a row of emerald green plants and they are looking thin and are shedding alot. I was out today cleaning up the sheded plant stuff (?) and noticed when I was shaking the tree to get the foilege off the branches a ton of these little fruit fly looking bugs where flying all over the place.
I caught about 6 in a plastic bag and have been looking at them trying to id them but have no clue.
I looked for any larve in the emerald green and did not see anything.
The plant looks like its dying from the inside out and I am wondering if these flying bugs are the cause.
Any ideas????? the bug looks like the size of a fruit fly.
