Would anyone know if it is ok to use a standard 'rose' aphid spray (triticonazole and acetamiprid) on my acer palmatum beni schichihenge?

thanks lyn. Doesn't look like one to me to be honest - Looking at pics on the web - and maybe they arent affecting the leaves at all. Someone just told me that their Beni S has leaves the same width as mine but i am sure this is very undersized at 1" across.

Could it be hurting the growth of leaves on my Acer Beni Schichihenge? There are lots of them crawling up the trunk.


Thanks

i will check how deeply it is planted but i think that is fine. and i dont think its too wet but will check...... the foliage on all those pics looks so much more luscious/dense than mine.
