My choco leaves get burn dueing summer and the fruits become unhealthy . It also upset me because of some yellow beetles around which i always squeezed by hand.

By the guide here it is grown during the autumn and winter in the tropics. If you are growing during the summer then you probably need to water it every day. The yellow/orange beetles if they have little black dots on them could be lady beetles. They are good in the garden.
