Great selection of blogs to follow. I didn't see one from an orange grove family. Maybe I missed it. I'm reaching out to all orange grove families and companies affected by Citrus Greening to offer help. We have just patented our formula that treats the HLB disease. Our formula permeates the cuticle and grow systemically in the plant's vasculature allowing the plant to successfully defend itself against the pathogen. Our foliar spray also kills the HLB bug within 24 to 48 hours after the attempted feeding. The formula also successfully treats Cankor as well. Anyway, if you do read this comment, please feel free to relay the messages to those orange grove families that, if they need help, we can offer free supplies. -Thanks, Brett
