Hi, I just saw your article about the problem with your ficus. I have a similar problem but it involves what appears to be an egg attached to the bottom of a leaf . It is white and very greasy feeling when mashed. The leaf eventually dies. I have sprayed with insect soap and Schultz house and garden insect spray to no avail. This tree is 11 years old and this is the first trouble I have had. Please help if you can.
Thanks, Mary Holden
