I once thought it's as invincible as the Highlanders. But the sad truth is, our mango tree is dying. The signs are obvious as some of its branches are drying up and falling off. Those dead branches are hollow inside. Which can mean that the whole tree is hollow inside too. I suspect the borers finally got to it.
After I got rid of another threat recently I really thought I saved my tree again. But apparently, it's not to be.
I remember getting rid of those pesky weaver ants which love to crawl all over me when I tried to pick those mangoes off the tree.
Lesson learnt. Never get rid of weaver ants completely from your mango tree. They actually protect your tree from borers and other pests.
