I live in zone 8, during winter it is inside from april enter image description hereit is outside, it is Gomera -3 type of mango Thx for any help. Adam

  • Mango plants are not easy to die (unless they are very young ). It's often to me seeing all the leaves falling down because of heavy fungus infestation and not even a single leaf left. Then, after several weeks they grow again. This is just my personal experience growing them with almost no care outside my house. They love rain BTW, it somehow clean them as well.

If I had to guess Adam I would assume that what your seeing with your mango is a direct result of those bugs sucking the sap from the tree. Give it time and hopefully, with any luck, they won't have killed it. I would change the soil as they tend to infest it and lay their larva in it.
