Leaves look eaten or torn - not seeing bugs

Jenn.BowenJuly 27, 2014

We've had this Japanese Lilac for 3 years and the leaves are looking torn or eaten. It had sprouted several suckers. There is a spider web high up in the tree and a few weeks ago I found a white pearl shaped "thing" covered in clear goo on one of the leaves. No sign of other pests. Any help would be much appreciated!

its a lilac.. it needs no help ...

minor cosmetic leaf damage.. who cares ... not aware of any bug that significantly harms them

suckers.. that the definition of a lilac .. unless its on a standard ...

spiders are our friends... and now that they have grown up.. and mornings are damp .. you see the webs.. enjoy the show ...

water properly ... never fert a lilac.. they are aggressive enough w/o juicing them ...

i am in 4 weeks of drought.. mine wilt every afternoon ... and i am not worried ...

and keep in mind.. its basically august.. stuff starts looking ugly ...
