Free Home & Lawn Inspections by Hulett

This could be the result of piercing-sucking insects that excrete a waste on to the leaf surface called honeydew. Then a fungus called sooty mold forms and feeds on the honeydew. This fungus detracts from the beauty of ornamental plants and reduces their photosynthetic activity. Hulett’s lawn service will help to control the insects that create sooty mold, and therefore help return the natural color of your plants and leaves.
