Privet (Ligustrum spp.) is widely used as a landscape hedge and for the most part seems to tolerate life in a wide range of sites. However, there are number of pests that are commonly seen on this host. They include privet thrips, twobanded Japanese weevil and lilac/ash borer. In addition, there are some privet diseases including alternaria leaf spot and anthracnose.
