Bugs on Lemon Tree Leaves

Anonymous added on November 9, 2010 | Answered

I have a lemon tree and discovered today that under the new growth of leaves are black bugs. I wiped them off, but I don't know what they are or how to keep my tree healthy. I have a lot of buds and am hoping to have healthy lemons. How do I organically keep this tree healthy?
