Pests. Starting by
planting your barberry shrubs in full sun or partial shade and
well drained soil will encourage plant health. Shady and
moist conditions encourage pests and disease. Some of the
pests that are attracted to barberry are the Barberry Looper
worms, Barberry Webworm, Twobanded Japanese weevils and Barberry
aphids. The barberry is not a plant that is overly
susceptible to pest problems.
