Citrus General Discussion / Re: bugs I can't identify

I was thinking maybe immature June Bug or Stingbug but doens't look like the photos I'm seeing when I google it.  No idea.
Immature june bugs live as grubs underground. These are a type of stink bug.

Do some research, the babies do stick together just like that. I have them every year do just as this when they hatch.

Yes it is. You can't legally send any citrus plant from CA to LA or vice versa.

I will still make a nice house plant. Try crushing a leave, it should have a decent scent to it. Lemons are the best when you crush the leaves as far as scent goes.

Pomelo do not come true from seed & also require a large node count before they will flower. In ground they will take 5+ years in perfect conditions. In a container they will never flower or produce fruit, that's just the nature of the variety.

That red bug looks like a relative of the stink bug or may be a variety of a stick bug. Doubt it will do any damage to your citrus.

I have two Bloodlime seedlings ready to go & about 5 more that will be ready in a few months.

$25 each plus $7 shipping only to non citrus states.

The tree is full of blooms now, so I should have a excellent crop this fall.

Looking for 10-20 seeds of Eugenia Braziliensis for a project for my kids.

The first photo looks like baby assassin bugs which are beneficial  for the tree. They kill the bad insects.

I only use swingle now. Compatible with almost anything & produces a nice vigorous tree.

No, I got it as a bubstick from Bonnie Childers. I believe he said the original tree was destroyed.

From my experience most all "hybrid" citrus come true or mostly true from seed.

Are you serious? $1200??? Navels will produce a seed or two if grown together with other citrus. I get a few seeds every year from my navel oranges.

The first photo I believe is mine. The plant died when I tried to transplant it years ago.

Looking good. You may get blooms on the tree this spring. Mine started flowering @ 3 years old.

Yes, these make excellent rootstock for everything I have grafted to them including lemons.

Bayer Advanced or any of the similar products that contain Imidacloprid will work. It's great for container trees, but you would go broke trying to use it on large inground trees.
