Darn peach tree borers!
Hi all! Hope all of your gardens are growing well?
Alot of my new growth on my two peach trees has been infested by peach tree borers!! The tips oon alot of my new branches have had to be cut short because of that darn little bug!
I have about 4-5 good scaffolds forming on one 3 year old tree and they got to a nice length before the bug got to some of them at the tip, while on my other tree it seems that alot of branches at the tips are getting infested every day.
Question is, once they are in the tips can I kill them with liquid seven? They are not in more than half an inch if even that. I have been cutting them out but that ruins the growth of the branches. It seems they are really heavy this year.
Is there a spray or powder that can prevent this? Something I can get from Home Depot or OSH? And once they get into the tips, can I use a spray to kill them? Or do I have to cut them out?
Thank You :-)
