Avocado Lace Bug

I just moved from MA to southern florida. The land I am staying on has several avocado trees, one with what appears to be "Avocado lace bug" and a couple of surrounding trees are starting to have some spots showing on trees.

What I noticed was quarter sized brown spots surrounded by yellow on top of the leaves and under the spots was tiny black dots, almost appearing to be some sort of mold or dirt like object. Further researched has lead me to believe that it may be the Avocado lace bug.

Is anyone familiar with any resources I may be able to find that can point me towards the direction of the cause/ reasons why the avocado lace bug is present, and a way to remedy the situation by treating the cause and not just the symptoms ?

I appreciate it!
