Hi, I have some young (less than a year old) citron plants and today I discovered that a pest has eaten the leaves and the outer stalk of some of these plants. Please help me figure out what kind of bug this is and how to get rid of it!

My favorite bug killer is diatomaceous earth. If you don't have any on hand, you can mix a squirt of dish detergent with a quart of water and spray it on the leaves.
Welcome, DavidG and good luck.
