I found the little yellow and red bugs on the underside of the leaves on my tulip trees. I just noticed them today. Most of the leaves are covered in these little suckers. I live in southwestern Ohio.
You really do have little suckers. These are Aphids and they have sucking mouthparts that they use to suck the juices from plants. Spraying the plants with soapy water is a natural way to help control their numbers.
