How often do you spray neem oil for citrus leaf miner and how do you keep from damaging your citrus in very hot temps ? Are you growing some citrus in pots in the ground ? If yes how is that going and how large are the buried pots ? Thanks. Tom

I have an 82 year old friend who is in to growing citrus....hes been getting plagued by leaf miner as well.......they are supposed to appear in autmn for the autumn growth flush but they were here from spring this year....I spray with neem oil every 14 days.....
The one in the ground are going well.......90% of the ones in pots are going well ....I have them in morning sun ...until about 1pm.......then they are out of the extreme heat........when autumn comes...i put them in full time sun.....its just started winter....so i will stop feeding them now.
