    I noticed this morning on my cherry tree some leaves are not looking good. When I turn them over there are these little spiders/mites/aphids?? I was searching to identify them but had no luck so far. Does anyone know what they are ?

    That's what they look like. They are about 2mm and move very fast when disturbed. I haven't seen any ants around them but then there are no more than two or three on one leave. There are not many leaves that have the lighter spots that are an indicator for them being underneath the leave. So for now I will just monitor to see if they increase.
    Thank you for your response.
