Fig Diseases

Anonymous added on June 23, 2011 | Answered

Potted fig tree has blotchy leaves that are black. There is a bug attached to one leaf, white egg case and spider web, and brown circles with large eaten holes. Can't decide how many things are wrong and how to treat it.

    This could be mealybugs or spider mites, both of which can be treated with neem oil. The following articles may help as well: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/figs/common-fig-tree-diseases.htm
