The Triumphant Return of the Redbud Leaffolder
Eric Rebek, Extension Entomologist
Redbud leaffolder appears to be gearing up for another big year in 2013. The diagnostic lab has received several calls this week about damage to redbuds and I observed more than a few affected landscapes over the weekend. Infested trees have discolored leaves that are rolled or folded at the leaf margins. If you inspect the leaves carefully you will find a caterpillar or two wrapped inside.
