Old fashioned snowball shrub attacked

schoolhouse_gwMay 25, 2014

Just noticed this morning, the leaves are riddled like when Japanese Beetles decimate a shrub, only I looked and it's a tiny grey worm with dark narrow lines on it. I've never seen this pest on my snowball shrub, really none except the JBs.

The blooms are for the most part normal but seems like they are not lasting long this year. In fact, it's only been a week since the blooms came out and already they are browning.

Anyone else having a problem?

viburnums are always susceptible to these creatures.
