A Technical Report from The Bartlett Tree Research Laboratories
The crape myrtle bark scale (CMBS, Acanthococcus lagerstroemiae) is an exotic pest that causes damage to crape myrtles. Large populations can cause branch dieback and eventual tree mortality. This insect also produces honeydew (a sticky, sugary excrement) which can harbor a sooty mold infestation.
