I think that's in Florida jr.
I don't think they have the problem in CA.....yet.

Good point beeman, CA may not allow the same pesticide. Yet!

There are a lot of people in Florida that got hurt this year.

Not to belabor the point but the pest they are treating for in Florida hasn't found its way to CA....to my understanding. Therefore...the systemic pesticide mentioned in that other thread should be unnecessary in CA.
