Hi wilhelmina

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Sooty mould is a secondary problem (fungi) caused by a sap-sucking insect such as an aphid, mealy bug, scale or whitefly. To control the insects, try 'Yates Nature's Way Citrus & Ornamental Spray (Pyrethrum Plus Oil Pest Spray)'. Controls a wide variety on insects pests on many edibles and ornamentals.
