Crape myrtle is prized for its beauty and its relative freedom from pests in the United States. It is considered to be a $46M crop (farmgate wholesale value) and is planted throughout the South and in many other parts of the United States. A relatively new exotic scale pest of crape myrtle, crape myrtle bark scale (CMBS) is threatening the utility and aesthetics of crape myrtles in urban landscapes in Texas and surrounding states. Dr. Mike Merchant, probably the first entomologist working on the issue in the U.S., will discuss brief history of CMBS in TX and surrounding areas, symptom, life cycle and control (what works and what does not).
