I have a loquat tree that keeps loosing it's leaves. It gets enough drainage and it is not getting burned by the sun. Some leaves will look fine and others yellow and then fall off. I believe i have a problem with very small spiders since i can't see them bot a see fine little lines connecting the leaves. I have used powder and spray insect killer but I am worried about using it to often.

The symptoms you describe make me think you're dealing with spider mites. Bayer Advanced has a product called ENVIDOR? 2 SC Miticide that is safe to use on citrus, loquat and other fruit bearing trees. Give this a try and I think you'll control the pests once and for all. Hope so!
