Sevin Concentrate is not labeled for use on citrus trees.  We would recommend Bayer Advanced Fruit, Citrus, and Vegetable Insect Control which may be safely used on labeled Citrus trees such as Calamondin, Citrus citron, Citrus hybrids (includes chironja, tangelo, and tangor), Grapefruit, Kumquat, Lemon, Lime, Mandarin (tangerine), Pummelo, Orange (sweet and sour), and Satsuma mandarin. Labeled Citrus that have been treated with Bayer Advanced Fruit, Citrus, and Vegetable Insect Control are safe to consume. Please read over the Product Label for complete use instructions.
