Controlling Worms in Apples and Pears Trees


judy carlson added on February 3, 2015 | Answered

The past several years I have worked and worked. I thought about spraying Malathion every week on my 7 apple trees and 2 pear trees. I was soooo disappointed last summer. I worked so hard and they were still wormy. How can I ZAP those moths, worms, insects from ruining the fruit crop? There are also about 50 bee hives stored throughout the spring, summer on the corner of the circle about 1/2 mile away. What can I do? Please help! Thank you!!

Tricky question because Malathion is highly toxic to bees. This may be a good question for your local Cooperative Extension agent: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/extension-search/

Also, this article offers suggestions for non-toxic control:http://pcmg.ucanr.org/files/171600.pdf
