Honey Bee Friendly Peachtree Pesticides

jrh added on February 5, 2018 | Answered

A honey bee apiary is next to my peach orchard. Could you give me advice for pesticide agents and application methods to control aphids, white fly, fungus blight and stink bugs while minimizing bee toxicity? Specific recommendations or references would be most appreciated. Thanks, Jeff Hoopes Albany, GA 229-343-5593

Yes, there are many ways to do this. Neem oil will not kill them, but they will stay away form the trees for just a little while. Just always apply on a cloudy day, or late afternoon. This will keep it from burning the plant. There are many other ways to make insect pest control yourself as well.
