Insects

Leafrollers, aphids, mealybugs, thrips, whiteflies, cutworms and scale insects are some of the insects that infest citrus trees. These insects will leave the citrus leaves wilted, curled, discolored and distorted. The damaged leaves may fall from the citrus tree prematurely. Aphids, mealybugs, thrips, whiteflies and scale insects feed on the juices inside the leaves which sucks the liquid out of the plant. Leafrollers eat leaves and mature fruit and roll leaves up, securing them with a silky thread.

Diseases

Horticultural oils protect the citrus plant from various fungal diseases, such as powdery mildew, rusts, black spot and scab. These products work by preventing the fungal spores from adhering to the plant and disrupting the fungal pathogen’s cell wall and prevents it from attaching itself to the citrus tree. Controlling insects and keeping fungal diseases under control helps your Citrus Trees stay health and producing.
