Boxwood Leafminer Needs Tree Spraying

If your Boxwood trees are looking sick with yellow colored blisters on the leaves, it is the result of being attacked by the Boxwood Leafminer insect. The adult female drills a hole in the leaf and lays her eggs. The leaf will then swell up when the larvae are active underneath the surface. They eventually eat away the leaves, making them weak and causing unseasonable foilage. Your Boxwoods need to be treated with a tree spraying and tree fertilization program before the entire tree is crawling with these insects. Call Sterling Tree and Lawn today so your Boxwoods can be sprayed against these unwelcome visitors.
