Insects on Lime Tree
I found three brownish and whitish stripped bugs about an inch long on my lime tree. I am trying to identify them. Have not seen them on any other tree or plant. The leaves are either gone or have large holes in them. Do you know what they are and can they be treated with citrus oil?
