can someone have a look at the pictures and tell me what's gotten on my lime tree. The leaves are very sticky

hopefully they will be clear enough to diagnose but if not I can take more

TIA

Male scale bugs on citrus look similar to a gnat and are generally not visible and they do not have mouth parts to feed. Male citrus scale pests also have a very short lifespan; sometimes only a few hours..."
