    LOL, what do you think I did there? Lol :D
    Had a look at a couple of them but there's like a black stain on it. I'm scared this kills any fish in a tank

    That will not help with viral infections. I used a product that has a blue powder in it - very very good for fungus and other nasties, I treated my heirloom yellow pear cherry tomatoes for tomato blight and they came out very well after treatment every week. We had a good sizeable crop harvested for home use and salads, it was so delicious.

    That stuff is only good for aphids and other insects but you need to be regular with spraying on every week and after the rains. My recipe:

    1 tablespoon finely grated fresh garlic off the clove
    1 tablespoon cooking oil
    1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
    1/2 teaspoon dish washing liquid
    2L bottle filled up to the brim with water.

    Shake well and spray on a regular schedule - once a week is good for low infestations, high infestation require a bit more.

    EDIT: Sorry it's a 2L bottle, not 1L

    We lived 15km from Malelane for about 35 years.
    My Dad started farming there in 1946, and it I could I would still be in that area.
    After getting home from school over weekends I spent most of my time wandering about in the bush, taking off snares.

    We would go to the KNP regularly, often just for lunch at Afsaal or similar picnic spots after church.

    Beautiful big houses surrounded by bush

    That damn yellow cobra guppy is in the pool again. I had to remove it this morning already. It lives in the pool now. And its official name is now That Damn Guppy.

    So jealous of both of you :D
    I love going to Kruger. I try and get there least once a year. But the problem is the air fares to SA are so high. :(
