I am in fort Worth,Texas. My Watermelons were doing well. All of sudden the leaves turned yellow, the flowers died. The tarrant county agg. stated that I had a new mite. I was advised not to aad the dead plants to the compost. It looked like a virus was also present. Has any one had this problem? :?: :shock:

Have not had this problem.

Plant Wash and/or straight (the 3% kind you find in the grocery store) hydrogen peroxide both work well against fungal issues.
