Insects and Spraying???
1. Is this a good time of the year to spray non-blooming citrus with hort oil? I was thinking that since the temps are now more moderate, this might be good to attack eggs, etc.
2. I have a supply of Neem oil. Does Neem oil = horticultural oil and can it be substituted?
3. Some insect is attacking the fruits of my Naval Orange tree and my Star Ruby Grapefruit. Whatever it is drills a perfectly round hole in the fruit about 0.5 inch in diameter and when one shakes the fruit, a swarm of tiny insects come flying out that have transparent wings, black (or dark) bodies and are about 1/16" to 1/8" in size. What is interesting is that they do not attack either of my lemons or my lime tree. Any ideas or what to do? I don't have any pix since I wanted to destroy the fruit ASAP. Will try to remember to get pix next time....
Thanks all for your help.
