Caring for Crapemyrtles: Managing Crapemyrtle Bark Scale to Restore the Health of Your Trees @ This is a virtual event
May 4 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Crapemyrtles were once considered to be one of the most low-maintenance and beautiful trees in our southern landscapes.  However, a relatively new insect pest known as crapemyrtle bark scale has infested many of our beloved crapemytles weakening the trees and causing an unattractive black, sooty substance to form on their foliage and branches.  University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture Extension Horticulture Specialist, Dr. Jim Robbins, and Faulkner County Extension Agent, Krista Quinn, will discuss this common landscape problem and show you how to manage these pests to restore the health and beauty of your crapemyrtle trees. This presentation is part of the Arkansas Urban Forestry Council’s tree care education program.
