  • small black fleas on potted lime tree

    Created by Peggy O’R on

    My large outdoor potted lime tree’s soil has fleas all over the pot rim in, on and thru the soil. How do I kill them without hurting the bees? Thanks!

    Hello,

    I think you may have flea beetles on your lime tree, which can be remedied with beneficial nematodes and/ or diatomaceous earth. Both are safe for people and bees!
