: I recently planted a Japanese Fireglow and it was doing fine ... until the leaves were eaten by some kind of fly (smaller than a house fly). Even now that there are no leaves, I still find the flies on the stems where the leaves were. The flies are not afraid of me either ... I have to pick them off. What are these and what can I do to prevent them and hopefully save my tree?
If this isn't it, I would suggest contacting your local extension service for some id.
