Navel Orange Pest
updated: Sep 19, 2011, 8:04 PM

By Edhat Subscriber

I'm wondering if some of the more horticulturally talented edhatters out there can help me out.

We have a navel orange tree in our backyard that is coming whose fruit is reaching ripeness. Some of the fruit has a cottony, white build up at the navel. There is definitely a pest associated with this, but I don't know what it is or how to treat it. You can see what I'm talking about in the photo, but there is also some sort of nymph or cocoon at about he one o'clock position in the navel. Other oranges have multiple "nymphs," but always and only at the navel. Any information or direction would be greatly appreciated.
