Four years ago, I planted a mango tree which produced 4 very big/sweet mango.  Recently, it came to my attention that  the leaves, although bigger & greener,  they are shredded.   I grow other fruit trees in my yard  (pineapple, bananas, papayas).  I did a thorough inspection and have not seen any bird nor worm my yard.     What can be the reason for the leaves' shredding?

It could be anything that comes in the dark of night............I would be prepared for the next event by waiting for the sun to do down and mix up 1 teasp liquid soap w 1 qt water and spray both sides of the leaves...............and again when it rains....keep a close watch that it does not start on the other trees.
