Crape Myrtle Pests
Garden Tip: As great as crape myrtles are as landscaping shrubs and small trees here in Texas, they do have several pest problems, including powdery mildew, aphids and scale insects. But, so do roses, azaleas, pecans, peaches and a ton of other plants.
We learn to work with the issues, and here are the suggestions from our website of The Crape Myrtle Trails of McKinney. If you’re experiencing a problem currently, this page should cover all the details. http://crapemyrtletrails.org/pest-control/
