white spots on my orange tree

Posted by brianohle 33702 (My Page) on

I have a ten year old orange tree that has developed white spots all over the trunk. The fruit is not developing right, it seems to be falling off the tree prematurely. What is this and what can I do to save the tree ??? Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated.

RE: white spots on my orange tree

Hi Brian..can you please add more info? For instance, are the white spots embedded in plant or can they be scrapced off?
Are there spots on leaves, too? Do you see/feel a sticky residue or trunk/foliage?
As for pests, the two I know of, (slow moving) are mealy and citrus scale. If you have a picturs it will be most helpful.
You can do a search at Type in name of bugs in search box, and click enter..Pics and info should pop up. There's many other sites w/pics of pests, too, if Wikipedia doesn't offer enough info.
When a plant has bugs, leaves/fruit can grow deformed.
I'd check the entire plant, over and under leaves, everywhere. Try scraping off the white spots. Toni
