Lime Tree with Louse Scale
Question by: Paul J.
My lime tree has been infested with louse scale. On hands & knees I have rubbed off the scale using lime sulpha & then gave it an overall spray . I have notice the bark of the tree has split in places & the tree is extruding small amounts of sap. I have noticed some new flowers, but not many & the number of limes have reduced. What is the future of the tree now the bark has split & can I do anything to heal the wounds & save the tree which is about 54-5 years old. thanks
