Hatching Iridescent green bug harming my weeping cherry tree

clynn128September 26, 2009

I'm sorry I don't have a picture , but maybe someone has seen these things before. They are attaching themselves to the leaves of my newly planted weeping cherry ( we planted in May) and then ugly iridescent green bugs are hatching from inside. They are ruining the leaves (though it's fall anyway) and I'm afraid that my tree won't come back in the spring. The store gave me some spray so I'll see if that helps, but I wanted to check here too. Thanks.

Instead of spraying, get physical!

Squish them. Knock them into soapy water.

Revenge is good!
