If you are a "non-responder or OpenID-er" which to me means I have no way of responding to a comment that you've left, please leave a way for me to get in touch with you, especially if you're participating in a blog give-away or if you are asking for information or links.
By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....
me at yahoo dot com
this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.
Thank you, in advance.....Ravelly Rhonda!!

Looks like a lichen we have in Australia that grows on fruit trees. It's a parasite and can't live without the tree. The spores are dust like and if you have hayfever or asthma they can give you a really bad day!I pick off as much as I can wearing sunglasses, bandanna across face, long sleeved shirt and long pants. Lol, I look like a hippy bank robber! I then spray with Copper Oxychloride (50g/10litres) which is about as close to natural as I can find but you do have to take precautions as copper can be toxic. Sprayed on hot days it can burn your tree, don't let it near water systems and have a shower after you've finished applying it. In nature a little copper is a good thing but excesses can be damaging and that's how it kills off the lichen.
Hope this helps but might be a good idea to pop some in a zip lock bag and have it identified by a local nursery who should also be able to advise on eradication methods.
