Orange Tree Sick!

Hi All,

Can anyone tell from the picture (at the link below) what is wrong with my orange tree? Also included are sick leaves from my pomegranate tree which is next to the orange tree and showing signs of the same illness. Any help will be appreciated.

The orange tree may have spider mites or other sucking pests. The pomegranate looks as if it is suffering from chlorosis.

Look for insects on the underside of the leaves. Treat them with neem oil. Neem oil is a broad spectrum botanical insecticide, miticide, and fungicide.

Check the pomegranate's soil for balance of minerals, looking for the proper amount of iron.

The plants are not over-watered or have been recently moved, have they? I had a mock orange for 30 years and had problems with mites only occasionally.

Hope this helps.
