“No Method Of Insect Control Will Ever Work…”November 4, 2016
Award Winning Blue Gold™ Grand Champion PME® Show RabbitsMarch 1, 2017
This is a persimmon tree that our friends, Roger and Lori, have on their property. It is a family tree with a great generational story. Its perpetual and declining health was quickly remediated with Blue Gold™ Solutions. Here is what they had to say:
Starting one month ago I began spraying my grandfather’s persimmon tree. He planted this tree in 1943 after he brought the seed back from the Pacific in his pocket. Needless to say, it is long past its prime. One side of the tree broke off and became infested with Formosa termites. I cleaned the rot off of the trunk which is six inches in diameter and sprayed the entire trunk and limbs with 21 m/L of Blue Gold™ Base Blend per gallon of water. Then following Maria Thune’s Biodynamic Calendar, I treated the tree once a week halving the Blue Gold™ Base Blend each time. Now it is full spring and sprouting. I am spraying three times a week with 2 m/L of Blue Gold™ Base Blend. For the last 10 years, this 7-foot tree has never produced over 50 total fruit in a year. Today, on the 5th of April, I counted nearly 1000, yes 1000, plus blooms. If I have a complete bloom set, transitioning into fruit, I will have to support the tree from sheer weight. At 1.5lbs per fruit normally, the math on this is terrifying, to say the least for this old soldier of a tree. Wow! What a product is the Blue Gold™ Base Blend. Thank you so much!
A second update: “Yesterday I sprayed the whiteflies with a 21 m/L solution of Blue Gold™ Base Blend, less than 25% died. These guys are unbelievable, but one good thing, the 21 m/L spray made the persimmon tree look even greener and lusher than before. I mulched under the entire persimmon tree today and soaked the mulch with water to get it going so to speak. So far I have only found 5 blossoms that fell off the tree. All near the road where vehicles pass by into our lower property possibly knocked off by a mirror or the like. Fruit will be the size of a half dollar in one month. As for the Nano whiteflies, I will keep a good eye on them and may stop 2 m/L spraying for 1 week then hit them with 30 m/L for the sake of testing.
