sick bay leaf plant

Can you tell me what’s making my bay leaf plant sick? It grew fine for a couple years. We live in the Southwest where it can get hot in the summer. The plant gets morning direct sun. It gets water every day. This year I put “bug stuff” on it to keep beatles off it. This year I gave it some Osmocote indoor/outdoor fertilizer.

The plant started to lose all its leaves several weeks ago and then grow them back. However the “dirty” look in the attached photo indicates it may lose all its leaves again. So what’s wrong with the poor guy?

It would appear that a pest issue is causing the spots and blackened leaf appearance.
Neem Oil is a good treatment for your plant.
