Mangos bagged, no nets

This year instead of netting the tree we have placed bags over the fruit.

2 reasons.

The first is bats won’t get caught. We did have one last year that we were able to release. This year there will be nothing to catch them in.

The 2nd is fruit fly. For the first time this year we have had a bit of fruitfly in some of the tomatoes. I want to protect the mangos but I am concerned I’ve left it a bit late. There is nothing to do now, but feed the tree and wait.
