Mr. Broome, thank you sooo much. I am on the third week of the coffee treatment and it is working. I have been spraying the plants with the coffee "tea" once a week on one plant that had more than the others and it has worked better than anything else I have tried. I have contacted others in my subdivision and have passed the word on the coffee solution. So how far away are we from a chemical solution to rid these things from our sagos completely? |
