Sick guava tree

Guava    None Given

I grew my tree from a seed about 2 years ago. Ever since transplanting it to my backyard from a pot, almost all leaves end up with holes. The fruits are also getting eaten by worms before they ripen. I have very little experience growing trees, but I love guavas so I decided to give it a try. Please someone help on how to stop my tree from getting eaten by insects. I live in South Florida and tried the water and soap spray but not sure how often i need to spray it and it also seemed like the leaves were getting burnt with the sun after being sprayed with the solution.

Dr. Ravishankar Narayana commented,
First, we need to identify the pest. Do you have images of insect and infected fruit?

Jeisy, do you have any more close up images of the fruit and leaves you could share? There are a few insects that could cause this so we want to narrow it down as much as possible.
