Japanese persimmon leaf curling?

Can anyone tell me what might be causing this leaf curl on my Fuyu trees?

It looks like aphids in a few spots, but doesn’t have any aphid evidence in other places. Probably going to nuke it with Neem later, but open to suggestions. Thank you for your time

I get those too. I think it’s:


You can probably finger crush the insect


That’s what I do. You have unfurl the leaves to kill them so just spraying doesn’t work well.

I think you a correct. I was seeing different insects around, and most of them are just instars of this insect

Probably the best idea, being that the trees are small too

What state are you in? I haven’t seen them yet in VA.

In north central texas
