See the small white spots just above the bud?

Adelgids is a class prime aphids. They are also known as aphids coniferous pine wool produced in pine, spruce, fir and other conifers. I tend to notice first of them at the base of pine needles and buds, but in the case of bad infestations, can completely blanket needles, branches and bark along the trunk.

treatment is similar to treatments for aphids or scale. The idea is to start with something soft as oils or soaps contact, then move to contact or systemic pesticides only if the need arises. Perhaps because settle in a little sheltered areas of the tree, it seems that several applications may be needed to eradicate adelgids from the garden. Better to keep healthy trees and ensure good ventilation and sunlight to produce trees less susceptible to infestation.
