citrus drops leaves

johnlllFebruary 23, 2012

Few days ago I sprayed my citrus lemon and orange with "Bug Buster." Soon enough, lots of leaves start to curl inside and fall off the tree. What can I do to save the tree and its leaves?

What sort of problem did you think the tree had?
Is it in a pot or the ground?
Indoors or out?
What's in Bug Buster? (I find a number of things that have the same name.)
Please post a picture.

The leaves had those nasty sticky spots. Trees are outside in the ground. The bug buster is insecticide. http://www.treehelp.com/itemdesc.asp?ic=LG-6400

I washed the tree with water from my garden hose. I checked the tree in few days and now I can see new leaves are start to grow! I am so excited! Thanks everyone for helping.
