stink bugs on lime tree

Zone caloundra sunshinecoast qld | gjwarriner added on October 31, 2015 | Answered

My lime tree is covered in stink bugs. Are they the reason it is not flowering and fruiting this year? The lime tree is about 12 feet tall and has always given us lots of fruit but not this year. It seems that the stink bugs are eating the flowers when they appear on the tree.

If bugs are eating the flowers that is the reason for no fruit. Spray with insecticide as soon as they appear.
