Lemon tree leaves being eaten by small white bugs. What can I do to prevent this from continuing?

Q:  My newly planted Myer Lemon tree’s leaves are being eaten by small white bugs. What can I do to prevent this from continuing?


A:  There are two products we would recommend for the white fly issue you are having. First we would recommend the Valet product from GrowScripts.  It is intended as a soap for washing / cleaning plants but has the capability to help you with the insects.  Second we would recommend T-Guard which is an all-natural product made from the Thyme plant. It is a contact insecticide and should work well for you.
