I have just panted my first Mayers lemon , Ruby Red Grape fruit, and Murcott Tangerine trees.
The Trangerine tree seem to be doing well but the Lemon and ruby red Grapefruit tree have some bugs on the leaves.
The grape fruit was covered in blooms as was the Tangerine.
The lemon tree is much younger it was a starter off of a friends tree.
Waiting your reply.. Thanks Jack

I apologize for this delayed reply to your gardening question and hope it is still helpful to you.

I'm not sure what your question was but I think it is about the bugs. I suggest you capture a few and take them to your County Extension Office for identification. That way you can find out if they are pests or beneficial bugs and if pests what is best to spray for them.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
