In Reply to: Magnolia tree - brown spots posted by Ben Carrier on July 27, 2003 at 19:30:25:
Please disregard, I found the culprits : the aphids called 'magnolia tree scales". I sprayed them with something that will be more difficult to digest than sap...
: My Magnolia tree has brown spots all over it. I manually destroyed a lot of them : when you scrape them, red liquid comes out. That's as if these brown spots contain red worms or these are insects with soft brown shells (but I have not seen them move). They don't seem to be part of the tree. Any help on how to fix this problem would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
