Latex paint for peach borers
I have recently discovered a borer problem in my peaches. I have dug out all the worms (I hope) but several already matured to adults so I need to control the next batch. I would appreciate experience reports on people who have used latex paint as a control. I was planning on painting a 50-50 water-latex mix from about 6" high and then about 3" underground, digging up the soil right around the trunk to get the paint in. All the damage I found was underground which is why I want to paint underground, but none of the recs I found mention that.
