Insects on Ficus Tree
I have some insects on my ficus tree but I can't figure out what they are.
They are very small and either black or dark brown.
They seem to live in the soil.
They suck the juice out of the new leaves causing them to fold in half like a taco shell and then they get withered looking. I've tried pulling off the effected leaves (with bugs in them) but as soon as new leaves grow, the bugs are back. What can I do to treat the soil (if that is where they live) and what can I spray on the leaves to make them less appetizing?
