    I've read through the information I could find about Euonymus problems but I'm still not sure what is wrong with mine! :?

    It has narrow white hatch-type marks all over it (almost like larvae but they do not move), has lost a lot of leaves and twigs and appears generally unhealthy.

    Does anyone know what this problem is and how to treat it?

    Thank you,

    Hi Clouise,

    Sounds like Euonymus scale aka Euonymus alatus scale.* You can read about it here.

    There is a clickable link to this page, but I would never use most of the toxic chemicals they recommend.*

    They do recommend insecticidal soap and horticultural oils, both of which would be a good option.* If you use a horticultural oil I would recommend one such as Organocide, which is made from sesame seed oil and NOT Organicide which is made from petroleum.
