The Q&A Archives: fruit trees

Question: I have white fuzzy things growing on the leaves of my grapefruit,satsuma.lemon trees.... the leaves are curlng and I don't want to lose my fruit... what can I use????

Answer: Judy,

I can't be sure but I suspect you may be seeing either mealybugs or some type of scale insects. I suggest you take a sample to your Parish Extension Office and see if they can identify the problem and if necessary prescribe an appropriate remedy. If it is scale the remedy will likely be a summer or horticultural oil.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
