Spined Citrus Bug Control
© Frances Michaels
The adult spined citrus bug has projecting horns on either side of its head, the young change colour from
yellow through orange and finally to green. They attack the fruit, causing shedding of the young fruit and
dry patches in mature fruit. Control by hand picking.
