LZ mango pest co trol
« on: July 18, 2019, 10:40:42 PM »
I have over 20 fruit trees and the only one with a problem is my LZ mango, has aphids like crazy that I canít control and many other things. Lost my whole crop to anthracnose and a hail storm. I grow all trees organically except my citrus that I fertilize organically but I give them Bayer citrus systemic treatments. My city checks on them regularly and will uproot them at first site of issues. Is it ok to use this systemic poison on a mango tree? Those mangos are so good I want this tree to work out.The trees are well cared for, heavily organically fertalized, foliage sprays and bugs or leaves picked at first sign of issues. This tree has so many issues I canít keep up. I canít do permaculture do to my neighborhood. If any other suggestions please let me know.

What does that mean when you say you can't do permaculture due to your neighborhood?

Can you post a picture, maybe there is something going on that's being overlooked.

Mango trees are generally easy to grow.
Do you get a lot of frost in your area?

Seems like your doing a lot for your trees so something sounds off.

To answer your question the soil drench would work but it might only be a bandaid solution as the problem might originate from something else.
It would also only affect insects.

What I mean by I canít do permaculture in my neighborhood is that it doesnít look pleasing to the untrained eye and my city and neighborhood would not allow it. All my trees in the front have bricked landscaping, can get away with a little more in the back yard. And here is a few photos of the pests. I have tried a goo substance to stop ants from working with the aphids but that hasnít seemed to help.
