Hey Gang,

Quick question: these azaleas have a case of lacebug that carried over from last year despite three applications of sevin, and the lacebug seems to have survived winter. Now, the shrub is exhibiting red leaves that are suggestive of leaf gall.

I'm inclined to tackle the lacebug first (the leaf gall is a bit widespread for hand pruning), perhaps trying some imidacloprid, and then going after the leaf gall. Does anyone see an obvious problem with this approach?
