Why did skin disappear from our lemons?


We used to have a lemon tree and one day, the lemons were there, but the skin was gone from all of them, as if they were peeled. What happened to the skin?

Qualification: I had the same problem with my grapefruits in California
Answer: When I paid a pest destroyer, he told me I had citrus rats, which just ate the skin and the pith, but not the fruit. He said they don’t want the citric acid.
