Eleuthera, Bahamas citrus problem
There is a citrus problem in Eleuthera, Bahamas. I am not certain as to the extent of this "worm" (?) that is attacking the citrus leaves. Causes a stunting of the growth and the leaves become twisted and deformed from the attack. It leaves a shiny and whitish trail on the underside of the leaf almost like a snail would. It appears to suck the life out of the leaf.
Am going to begin a regimen of treatment as soon as the neem oil concentrate can be located. Will share my experience once treatment has had time to take effect.
Any information for this area/problem, would be welcome.
I have spoken about this problem with a local grower today in Lower Bogue and his grove has been devastated by this problem. I would like to assist my fellow Eleutherans with any information about your product so that we can all deal with this issue and bring back our citrus trees.
The gentleman was the first person to ever share a citrus tree with me when I was a young gardener. The orange tree grows in my yard today and is not doing well at this time. I want to save it and all my others.
The plants being sold locally are affected. It appears to be everywhere and the agricultural individuals have not been able to provide any information that is helping. They have visited the grove at stopped at today to buy trees. What a sad sight.
Thank you so much for the information I have found on your site. It is the most hope I have found to date.
