What do you treat Weeping Cherry tree with?

I have a weeping cherry tree. I found that there are so many curl leaves with mites on the tree as shown in picture. Do you know which product product should I get?

Hi Ejik,

The weeping cherry appears to have a bad infestation of aphids which can suck the sap of the leaves and shoots. Often the newly formed leaves will be deformed and twisted. The aphids can be controlled with either PestOil , Yates Nature's Way Vegie & Herb Spray Concentrate. You may need to spray a second spray about 7- 10 days after the first spray. Fertilise the tree to help it recover from the damage and apply some Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser. It's certified organic and will help create a nutrient rich soil for better root growth, stronger plants and more flowers and fruit! It can be used on gardens all year round, including native plants.
