is the best way I can describe this new, to me, pest. I noticed too late that it had decimated a none-too-healthy crabapple and it is history.
Now, I am seeing one or two of the disgusting creatures on my roses, not in the same proximity, and I am dismayed.
I have never seen this creature in the 20 years I've been here. It is very tiny, maybe 5/16ths of an inch, and white with a yellow head. It doesn't move when touched, and when squished, looks exactly like marshmallow fluff.
My roses are old and near and dear to me, so I would very much appreciate information and a means to their swift extermination. Thank you.
