Whiteflies in Temp AZ
Arriving here in 2011 and breeding up to 15 times a year, the Asian Citrus Leaf Miner was in every citrus tree I looked at for several years.
The population grew unchecked well into the summer of 2019,. So for at least 8 years, the leaves on your citrus trees have been producing far less energy than normal.
Because of this the reserve cells are dangerously low. Biologically speaking, your citrus trees have run out of gas.
Because it has no natural predator in Arizona there was nothing to keep it in check. However now it competes with the Ash Whitefly.
It takes years but eventually a citrus trees reserves will be drained to the point that it can no longer defend itself against any insects or soil born fungus.
That’s where we come in, if it’s not too late we can get you started on a program to restore the energy reserves of your trees.
