Re: powdery mildew on crepe myrtle

I use sluggo and it works great.
Another option are gum balls from the sweat gum tree. Boy, do we have gum balls, thruout the fall and winter. There's one good use for them.

Escar-Go!, Schultz, and probably others. An added advantage is that,
IME, they work much better than metaldehyde
