Answer: There aren't many insect pests that enjoy munching on thick, glossy citrus leaves, but an exception is snails. Lift the container to see if snails are hiding beneath. Destroy any you find. Water stress can cause leaves to drop prematurely. When you water, apply water slowly so that it can trickle down and thoroughly soak the soil. Water as often as necessary (soil dries out quickly in containers) and place an organic mulch over the soil surface to keep moisture from evaporating. An organic mulch material such as compost will provide nutrients to the roots of your plants as the mulch breaks down.
