I have another thread for my burning bush but thought more views would be possible in a new thread. I am guessing that these are spider mites? Confusing that you can see them, the black but what is the white? Do you just wash these off or I have some fungicide that says it is for spider mites. Thoughts? Thanks for your help.20170519_194527.jpg 20170519_194527.jpg 20170519_194659.jpg 20170519_194624.jpg

Remove only the leaves that they are on? I have some systemic Rose & Flower care. Should it say on the label? Thank you for your help and have a great weekend. Jamie

yea, you don't need to remove uninfected growth. You should watch the rest of the plant daily though. The rose and flower may work fine. You may wish to to do a prophylactic spray of insecticide after removing the bad leaves and egg sacs until the systemic takes hold.

After the bugs I lost a couple of trunks, another was lost to I assume the winter. At first I was not bothered as I reasoned that the plant was choosing the trunks to leave, something I was having a hard time deciding. Then tonight I see all of the leaves on one trunk are dull green and dry, the stems a brown and stiff. The tree is nice and damp in well drawing soil, moderate fertilizer. This plant lives a pretty cushy life. Any idea what gives? I would hate to loose the tree after all of this effort. Thanks. Poor photo with better ones to follow.

I don't know what the heck bladder galls are, but those are aphids. Either hit them with a little permethrin or just let them run their course, they don't typically damage anything but a few leaves at the tips.
