Q.How Do I Treat A Diseased Dwarf Meyer Lemon Tree?

Zone Sacramento, CA 95833 | Anonymous added on April 20, 2022 | Answered

I am trying to download pictures of my diseased Meyer lemon tree. The leaves have tan spots on them that look like transparent paper. The lemons have white spots and look like insects are feeding on them. What can I do? I was hoping I could get pictures to show you, but the loading factor is not working for me. I live in Sacramento. The tree is in a very large container that gets sun from morning until around 2pm. I have the water meter installed in the pot so they get water. The tree is about 3 yeas old. Thank you in advance for your assistance in this matter. Girtha Bouie

This resembles fruitfly damage, or similar pest damage. I would look into insect pest management, as well as a fungicide to mitigate infections caused by insect damage.
