Insect infestations on Peach Trees.

Thu Jun 22, 2006 8:00 pm

Yes, we actually have Peach trees up here, and two of our trees have flowered and actually have fruit on them. It seems though that we are having a problem with spiders, and the one tree has lost most of it's fruit.

Ideas :idea: :?: Help in eliminating this problem so we can have a peach or two this year would be greatly appreciated..

Rudi,

Our only remaining peach tree was covered with blossoms this spring. Most of them must have been pollinated because the tree is simply covered with peaches. Every time I walk by I try to shake it to get some of them to fall. There's no way that tree can support anywhere near that many peaches, unless they're no larger than marbles.

My understanding is that an elderly or distressed tree will produce extra fruit in an effort to pass on it's genes. Maybe it's time for me to to plant another tree? :(

It that idea is true your tree must be in good shape. :)

I wish it was in good shape. Seems one of em is dying.. next to no leaves left on it.. and the other one has problems too.

Can ants kill fruit trees :?: :?:

We got some pesticides that are environmentally friendly.. not sure how well they will work.. but the other good stuff is not politically not correct and therefore bad.. so we will have to see how bad the politically correct stuff is..... :wink: :shock: :? :!: :idea: :?: :lol:
