Dormant Spray Fruit Trees
Pests that appear on lush new spring growth are eliminated or greatly reduced by properly applying dormant sprays now. They effectively kill the over wintering eggs of aphids, mites, most scales, plus many other pests and some plant diseases that are now in their most vulnerable stage. For most fruit trees apply a fixed copper or a lime-sulfur mixed with horticultural oil. For apricots use only fixed copper. The lime-sulfur may kill the apricot tree.
*Seasonal spraying of trees is not included in our regular maintenance service.
WHEN TO TREAT: After the leaves drop or just before the tender buds begin to swell and open. Avoid treatment just prior to rain as this will reduce its’ efficacy.
