Medium_dsc_0215 What has infected my fig. It is fruiting but the leaves have been attacked. They dry up and drop off.

The green of the leaf is removed and only the leaf skeleton is left. On closer inspection I have found several brown bugs, beetles I think that appear to be the culprits. They are insects and may have wings. What is the best treatment for this? See attached photo.
