I love fig preserves, but way too many birds and coons here to raise any. Lots of people here tried..can't compete with the winged creatures...

What if you build yourself a wire “shell” GB? Hardware cloth or chicken wire. Be a little aggravating but it should work.

I spot sprayed some small berry vines and small trees with regulate. Around at least 25 feet from a fig tree. Looks as if I have killed a nice fig tree right outside of the office window. Using a pump up sprayer and being careful to keep the regulate where I was spraying. Any way I guess it gassed up and moved around.

Active ingredient?

Triclopyr is volatile. I think the label on Garlon 4 says volatile above 80 degrees F. Some plants are more sensitive to it than others. Grape vines are highly sensitive to volatilized triclopyr and so are young longleaf pine trees if you spray it within 10-15 ft of their crown, especially when they're candleing.
where'd it come from, how'd it get there?
