What is attacking my new mango tree (pics incl)?

flfishieAugust 3, 2010

We planted this Carrie Mango tree last Saturday. On Monday, the leaves started having issues. We have been watering each day and I used an insect soap, but it isn't looking better. Any ideas?! I don't want to lose it!

may have been a hit and run caterpillar, doesnt look too alarming.

mangos grow pretty effortlessly here after about a year in the ground, they dont really have a pest problem other than fungus anthracnose which copper can help during the wet season.

Carrie is an excellent selection

Thanks kush! Where can I get the copper and how to I apply it? What should I look for with anthracnose?
