I have an apple tree that is planted in the middle of a raised flower bed. The bark on the tree is very scabby and the fruit has what I assume are either ant or earwig marks. Also, the plants in the planter seem to be eaten (usually I plant nasturtiums). Is there anything I can spray or put around the tree trunk to deter this?
I would recommend using a product called Safer Bug Patrol and follow the directions on the label for use around fruit trees. It can be purchased in a handy hose end sprayer bottle.
