Cherry pest

Asked May 7, 2020, 8:54 PM EDT

Hello, I saw small reddish and yellowish bumps that look like tiny bugs on my cherries' quarter inch leaves. Can you help me identify this? My guess would be aphids but they are really tiny.

Hello,

Thanks for your question and for the pictures. The red/yellow-orange bumps are actually supposed to be there. They are extrafloral nectaries.
