What is wrong with my bougainvillea?

This is located in Southern Florida. The location is probably not getting enough light, but I am not sure if something else is going on. I also see there is something eating it but it is the yellowing/browning of the leaves (occuring more on the less sunny side) that is concerning me. I do feed it commercial bougainvillea food. Thank you.

RE: What is wrong with my bougainvillea?

This is what I would do, I would take off every leaf that has that brown on it, and spray it real good with Organicide.
You can find this at any big home store.
It is really concentrated, so buy a spray bottle and mix according to directions.
Spray every inch of it, in the early morning.
Wait 10 days, then spray it again.
Even if you don't see symptoms, spray it.
Remove every brown leaf in the meantime, and if any leaves fall off, remove them from under the plant.
If it's a fungus, or a bug, the Organicide will take care of your problem.
Works great on any plant, will even kill fleas in your yard, and if you have pets, it is safe.
I swear by it. I have pittosporums that get horrible scale, and its the only thing that really works good.
Read the bottle, it's good for what ails your plants.
Have a great Thanksgiving!
