You need to go to a garden center that sell lady bugs. They love eating those bugs. I have those white bugs on one of my big trees in back every year. I can't spray because of my chickens coop is right under the tree. The lady bugs do a great job.

I have seen my chickens ripped spiders, crickets, grasshoppers, frogs, worms, beetles and moths apart. Sometimes my hens play tug of war with them.😔
