Answer: Your tree has scale insects. They can be controlled with a spray of horticultural oil which smothers them. Take the tree outside to spray it thoroughly with the oil. Coverage of the insects is critical for effective control. Other insecticides are available to control them, but most are not labeled for edible, fruit producing trees. Keep a close eye on them as one treatment is usually not sufficient.
Good luck with your orange tree!
