Guava tree problem

Post by SamArif » October 7th, 2016, 7:10 pm

AOA,I had guava tree in my garden....For the first time it produced 3 guavas.Although their size was big yet they had pests inside them and also they were too dry to chew even after ripening...The next year came and I saw its new leaves were sprouting after autumn...I thought to take its care...I saw the houses of small ants in its base...I started to plough around it.I did not go v deep.Also gave water..On the very next day,I found that its leaves become dried... within 2 or 3 days that tree which was enjoying its life previously, became dead...plz can u tell me where did I make mistake?

When I loose some plants it is also due to over doing what I think needs be done.

If you are sure those were just ants and not "termites", then perhaps you dug up deep enough to damage the feeding roots.
I have lost one orange and 14 pear trees (despite termite treatment) because of termites at base. Pear is the only tree attacked most by termites at my place and every year I plant these again.

Hello..
Recently I have shifted to my new house and it is beautiful but I found some problem in its garden, the problem is that there are some plants and trees attacked by termites and insects, so I am confused how to get the solution of this problem.?
