    Special thanks must be Given to the Brazilian Agency for Agriculture (ABC) and the officer (Troy Augustine) who unselfishly brought the information to the Grenadian people without charging them a single cent. I would like to let the farmers know that this information is and should be freely distributed to them by the Ministry of Agriculture officers. Only recently traps have been made and sold to the farmers who themselves can make them once the knowledge is passed down this should be a “I teach you you teach others”
