Azalea Lace Bug


Azalea Lace BugsĀ are only about 1/8 of an inch long. With a magnifying glass you can identify them by their transparent wings that form a lacy shield over their square shaped bodies.

Lace bugs and their larvae feed on azaleas and other flowering plants and shrubs throughout the growing season. You might notice yellow or white stippling on leaves, leaf curl, browning of leaves during active growth or premature leaf drop.


Use Bug Killa, a systemic granulated insecticide that is taken up by the plants roots to control aphids on Azaleas, Roses and ornamental plants. It will protect your plants for up to 6 weeks.
