Will Milky Spore cure slime flux on a Palo Verde tree?

Answer:

No, Milky Spore will not cure slime flux on your Palo Verde tree.  It is labeled for Japanese beetle grub control only.   Unfortunately, there is no treatment except to keep the tree as healthy as possible and remove any affected limbs.  Below you can find links for two articles with more tips and information:
