It was a bit of an infestation. I removed them all and tossed them over the fence(not my neighbors yard). There should be plenty of greens for them to chew on there. However, I am going to spray them to prevent future infestations.
Citrus trees attract all kinds of pests. Caterpillars were the main problem with them..but, it seems they've found something else to feed on. I also have peppers, tomatoes, herbs, berries, aloe, banana, and papaya, So, unfortunately I feel forced to use some kind of pesticide. I use dish soap w/ water for the vegetables and herbs..but, that doesn't do anything to protect my Citrus.
I tried "Organocide"(worked fairly well) for a while and am now trying a spray called "Citrus, Fruit & Nut Orchard Spray" made by Bonide. Both claim to be made from natural ingredients. I had used them only on my Citrus up to now..but, plan to spray it on my berries as well.
Do any of you have any positive or negative experiences with these products?.. any other products that you could recommend for fruit trees?
