PREVENTING THE TINIEST OF INSECT AND THE SPREAD OF HLB
The Asian citrus psyllid (ACP) is a tiny mottled brown insect, about the size of an aphid, that poses a serious threat to citrus trees - including those grown in home gardens and on farms. The psyllid feeds on all varieties of citrus (e.g., oranges, grapefruit, lemons, mandarins, etc.) and a few very closely related ornamental plants in the family. They feed and can infect plants with bacterium Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus, which is associated with the fatal citrus disease huanglongbing (HLB), also called citrus greening disease. HLB can kill a citrus tree in as little as five years, and there is no known cure. The only way to protect trees is to prevent the spread of the HLB pathogen in the first place.
Very tightly woven material - Protect crops individually or all-in-one - Shield your beautiful vineyards - Minimize the use of pesticides with Fruit Shield
Pesticide contamination and the poisoning of non-targeted organisms such as humans, wildlife, bees, and the contamination and poisoning of drinking water and soil is a very serious global problem. ‘No better time than the present’ to start realizing and creating solutions that will benefit our planet. Environmentally questionable practices are definitely impacting our planet. With Fruit Shield, insects, critters, and other viruses and disease-causing elements can be shielded from accessing plants, which is a better ecological alternative than harmful poison prevention.
PESTICIDES AND OUR ENVIRONMENT
A blanketed layer of protection can go a long way in lessening and even preventing damage from the forces of nature. Hail, heavy rain, wind, and frost can be effectively repelled by the durability of the tightly woven netting. All while still allowing air, sunlight, and gentle watering to seep through. Also the veil coating of Fruit Shield netting will slightly shield the applied area by providing a small amount of UV buffer, lessening the UV ray aiding in extreme heat conditions.
HAIL, HEAVY RAIN, WIND, AND FROST
