Sherrie, maybe you should get a professional out to look at it?
It's #1 and it's called Pink disease or die back and says you should see pink at the tips which works it's way downward on the branch.
It looks like you are doing the right thing by cutting it back and removing the affected
It also mentions spraying Bordeaux mixture (I %) in May-June and then again in October.
so in actuality it is a fungus and not an insect and I have misdirected you.
sorry for that, so glad that you didn't go ahead and do what I mentioned!! even though it wouldn't have hurt the plant.
Four Season & Marg C I do appreciate your thoughts & recommendations. I'm going to keep my eyes on that hedge before I do anything. If the bad area increases then I will have the hedge professionally treated.
