Answer: Hi Samantha,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

The spots on the tree and leaves there are of a black scale. These can be tricky to control and need a product that is easy to use but tough on the pests as well.

We recommend using Natures Way Citrus & Ornamental Spray on the tree. Apply to the top and base of the leaves to improve coverage. While the tree is under attack, also give it a feed with Thrive Naturals Vegie & Herb Liquid Plant Food. This will help build the trees strength and assist with its stress.

Kind regards
