Similarly, it is asked, what can I spray on citrus for bugs?
Chemical Control of Whiteflies, Leafminers, Mealybugs, & Aphids: Horticultural oil sprays will control whiteflies, mealybugs, and aphids, but not leafminers. On citrus trees, apply horticultural oil sprays when pests are present, and when temperatures are between 45 and 85 ºF.
Secondly, what's eating my citrus tree leaves? Leaf-eating bugs such as aphids, caterpillars or mining insects can make the foliage of citrus trees look unattractive. The good news is, this is usually the extent of the damage and these pests do not actually hurt the tree or the fruit.
Also question is, how do you protect lemon trees from insects?
Spraying in winter: Should scale and aphids become a problem during winter, spray lemon trees with a canola-oil-based organic spray. Aphids can also be sprayed off with a strong jet of water or, in the case of young trees, rubbed off with your fingers.
