We have a 5-yr old Naval orange tree and a great number of the loaded fruit are turning yellow and dropping to the ground--I'd say maybe 5-6 eqach day. Can you help?

Fruit drop is common, as the trees set far more fruit than they can bare to maturity. They drop pea-size to golf-ball-size fruit in May and June in a natural thinning process. Fruit drop can be worsed by hot weather and high winds.
