Bugs on/in Weeping Purple Beech
Within a few days to my horror my weeping purple beech had many of its leaves stripped from the stems. On closer examination, I saw these furry little bugs. Then I noticed a hole in the bark of the trunk and I see other little entry holes. I sprayed the leaves and stem with Sevin and poured FertiLome tree and bush insect drench at it's base. This happened and so fast! Had I been out of town, I would have lost this tree. What are those furry little things and is it the same thing as what is eating the bark? Is there anything else I should do? I don't see how to post both pictures so will follow with the borer hole picture.
