Re: Palm Weevils

I use Nuprid 200SL on my Pheonix Canariensis ( I have 75 on my Finca). I drench them 4 times a year). The active ingredient is IMIDACLOPRID and I buy it from my Agricultural Merchant where I am a registered user. There is no problem at the present time in supply.

Re: Planting new trees

The only trees in bags around us are Mangoes in their first year. They do protect most new tree plants hereabouts with anti rabbit tubes but I'm sure you know what they look like.
