Sick junipers

Oscar, have you tried using systemic insectiside?
If not, I would recommend so, I had a Juni with the same symptoms autum last year and it cleared up.
I would also closely inspect the bark and under the soil a bit without taking any roots off.


What Adam said is also a good idea,
Thanks,
James

From what is seen here it appears to be sun burn due to the residue of pest oil/eco oil. See them so often when pest oil/eco oil is use in summer. Pretty sure there is no more insects or pest of any of the like is left. Why?? After pest oil/eco oil and confidor pretty sure nothing will survive these intense treatment. Any more would be a waste of resource. Again this deduction is from what is posted and the pictures.
Yours sincerely.
Leong.

Hi Oscar,
Mate try some soapy water, lasts long enough to effect the pests, water dries out, then you hose off the soap residue next watering.
Clean out the old, dead and damaged needles. Lets the light and air in.
A light prune/pinching will help stimulate new growth.
Could also check what is going on in the pot later too!!!

Cheers Rod

Thank you

Thank you everyone for your advice.

I will reduce the amount of sun they get, wash them and remove the dead stuff.

I hope it works - I have 5 of them at stake!

Regards

Oscar

Hi Oscar,
Put your junis in mostly morning sun for a while, this is the cool part of the day, at least until the regain health and vigor.
Junis are pretty tough and hardy can stand harsh climate cons, but when not well they need a little tlc. Keep eye on them maybe foliage spray with weak solution Seasol will help.
Cheers Rod

Thank you
