Lime Tree Pests

Zone Sub Tropical | Ironbar01 added on November 13, 2011 | Answered

I have a Lime tree that has been a good producer over the last few years. However, about 1 month ago, "Stink Beetles" (I don't know their real name) started appearing on my tree in numbers and appeared to be attacking the flowers, which in turn dropped off. I have pruned the tree back. Is there anyting that I can do to get rid of them, short of picking them off?

I would recommend trying neem oil on them. Neem oil is an effective pesticide, but is food safe and will not harm people. Here is more information on it:
