Medium_img_0924 I have small fingernail sized things on my citrus leaves, they are furry on top & full of tiny eggs underneath

I have other photos showing the underside if needed. If they are friendly critters like a spider, I am happy to leave them, but am concerned they may damage or feed on my fruit or trees.

Answer: Hi Ashley,
Ir may be easier to watch and wait for the little creatures to hatch as it is difficult to determine whether they are caterpillar eggs and what species. Can you check the leaves ever couple of days for the next 10 days?

If caterpillars emerge then they can be controlled using Yates Success which contains spinosad, a naturally occurring soil bacteria.
