Be vigilant against crape myrtle bark scale pest
A new insect pest found in Mississippi on March 15 could take away the crape myrtle's status as a beautiful and low-maintenance landscape tree. Crape myrtle bark scale, or CMBS, is an invasive insect that came to the United States from China. It was first found in Texas in 2004 and has since spread east to Shreveport and Houma, Louisiana; Little Rock, Arkansas; and Germantown, Tennessee. Ocean Springs joined this list when the insect was found on the coast in Jackson County.
