Please identify pest and eggs on my magnolia
I have been on a quest to figure out what is wrong with my magnolias, and today I discovered these two things. This is the only egg patch that I could find, so I doubt this is serious, but none the less I would like to know what it is before it becomes a new problem.
Eggs on one of the branches. Sorry it is not clearer, but they appear to be wrapped in a sort of webbed sac.
Beetles infestation in the mulch around the magnolias. A little bit bigger than a lady bug. Is it just a common ground beetle or something else? Are they harmful to trees?
