How did that happen?

I don't know how it happens, but it does - one day you look and there they are. Sometimes you can put a halt to the infestation by cleaning the leaves, top and bottom, with a cloth dipped in dish detergent and water. Time consuming, but if your tree is a good size, it's worth it. And you need to check every few weeks for a new assault. :- (

Good luck!
