white specks and bumps on fig tree
My fig tree is very healthy just one and one half years old, and has lovely figs. Yesterday I just noticed little white bumps along the branches and a few of the leaves are falling off. I hand scraped most of them off, and noticed little brown spots inside. Can you tell me what this is and how I get rid of it. I have never seen it before in all my years of having fig trees. Thank you very much.

It sounds like scale or mealybugs are affecting your fig. Neem oil can help with both. Here is additional information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/scale-bug-how-to-control-plant-scale.htm
