How to deal with lace bugs attacking your plants

If you’ve suddenly notices leaves on plants, like azaleas or lantana, are looking really bad, it might indicate they are under attack from lace bugs.

LSU AgCenter’s Heather Kirk Ballard explains how to stop these destructive insects. She states, “What you can do to help out is to use some organic type materials, such as a year round horticultural oil. Now, make sure when you apply this that you get good coverage on the plant because the insects are on the underside of the leaf... You can also use another organic-type insecticide called spinosad, that’s more friendly to the environment.”
