One of the best controls of any bacterial disease is the immediate health of the soil
and tree. A good bacterial spraying would consist of any of the many natural bacterial
products available on the market today. For more information see Disease control Chart
(you should add the rock dust to a panty hose and place into water)
20 drops Garlic Oil.........see Garlic
1 oz 3% or 1 drop food grade H2O2.............see
In a 1/2 gallon of filtered water slowly add
the above mixture until completely dissolved. Add enough water to make a gallon. Allow to
sit. Strain water into a gallon sprayer. Spray on affected areas of tree. Apply daily for
first week. Then monthly until problem is gone. Could take a year or so to complete.
Another Simple Bacterial spray
Take a pound of good rich live compost, place into a
panty hose, tie into a ball (like a tea bag) and place into a gallon of filtered water, do not use unfiltered city
water for this as the chlorine will kill off the beneficial bacteria.
Allow to sit overnight then spray
Other treatments suggested:
Sometimes it is a good idea to remove the affected areas from the tree. Talk to me or another Arborist to see if this is possible
first before you do this. Just send me email.
Treat the soil and address any factors that are damaging to the tree and soil.
