Crapemyrtle Bark Scale

Crapemyrtle currently is a $66M/year wholesale value crop. According to the latest Census of Agriculture, there were 33 states producing crapemyrtles, and the number of plants sold in 2014 was close to 5 million, a 64% increase from 2009. Crapemyrtle bark scale (Eriococcus lagerstroemiae) is an emerging pest threatening the production and landscape use of crapemyrltes. It was recognized among the top 9 pests reported in the past two years by the Greenhouse Grower magazine, was listed as one of “key management arthropods”, and was noted that “no biological control of the crape myrtle bark scale is known." This webinar will discuss brief history of CMBS in TX and surrounding areas, symptom, life cycle and control (what works and what does not).
