Green LightŪ Fruit Tree Spray
You can use it at 1/4 teaspoon per gallon as a soil drench and kill all those larvae.
Hey Richard, I just bought a bottle of the Fruit Tree Spray, but the directions say to spray the underside of the foliage. Is it possible to treat the root area with this stuff? I noticed my palm trees have this white mold or fungus growing underneath the soil and i worry that the bananas might have the same, I really hope the roots of my banana are not all rotting.
