Avocado Lace bug.
My 12ft 2-year-old avocado tree is infested with lace bugs. She keeps growing new healthy leaves, but the lace bugs keep catching up and destroying those too. The tree has a woody solid 5 ft trunk. Can I just cut the lace bug-infested canopy off and let new healthy branches grow from the trunk?
I'll be cautious and cut each individual branch off without knocking any lace bug off the leaves and onto the ground, which might result in re-infestation.
