I have finally uploaded the description and life cycle information about another lace bug pest that is making its way towards our region…the azalea lace bug, or Stephanitis pyrioides to be absolutely correct. (Photos will be coming soon.)

It is my understanding this pest has made its way as far up Vancouver Island as the Cowichan Valley, and possibly a little further. If anyone hears anything about this pest on the Island, please contact me through my Contact page and provide what details you can.

In the meantime, I have been having a little trouble with a few of my pest Ids not showing up on the list under “Pests”. So far, I have not been able to find the problem but am still working on it when I can.

In the meantime, you can get to this pest ID page by clicking on the quick link here. Or you can open the Select Category in the sidebar on the right and click on Pests to see all of the postings in that category to date.
