I remember once a Cascara in back of my house became so infested with aphids, from a distance it looked fuzzy. They were so thick it boggled my mind. Then about a week later, I notice the tree looked odd, kind of reddish color. There were lady bugs in mind boggling numbers. Then a couple days later, not one could be seen. I have always wondered where they came from and went to.
