Medium_mites01 Weeping Cherry Disease

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?

Answer: 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 Pest Oil, Nature’s Way Insect and Mite Killer or Confidor.

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 seaweed solution or Yates Uplift Organic Fertiliser which contains fish, seaweed, fulvic acid and Bio-activ, a soil micro organism that helps stimulate root growth.
