    leaf galls is what it look likes to me -- down here we have a total infestation of these this year -- spray it with orthene -- might have to spray it two or three times though there a pain to get rid of

    Syzer Please watch your spelling.

    Sorry guys but we as moderators can't edit out a posts title needed some one higher up to do it.

    Simple mistake, I’m well aware of all the guidelines of posting and never curse on LS. I usually spell check my post but not my topics; sorry it slid by, but if you feel the need next time remove, and I will repost.

    I am still in the schooling phase of pesticide management so forgive me when I ask:

    Would you spray this late in the season with leaf drop so close or is this pest deadly?

    Try posting this in the Pesticide forum. There are some people over there that really know their stuff that I hardly ever see posting in other forums. Maybe someone there can help.

    Good question. We need to first determine the pest before making treatment decisions. We should check what the label says about your question. I would guess some pests may be treated around leaf drop & others probably not.

    Jumping in late, but here goes... Hackberry nipple gall is from the psyllid (spelling?). It is an insect problem, rather than a disease. I used to spray dursban in the spring; at 3/4 leaf expansion and again 10-14 days later. Orthene would work, or Astro. Not sure of the rates on those products though. Good luck
