Ornamental Peach Tree

How can I stop an ornamental peach from forming peaches.

Can I spray the tree with something when it is blossoming that will kill the blossoms but not harm the bees? I love the shape of this tree but it is so messy in the late summer when it drops its fruit and since it’s not very good tasting I would just as soon eliminate the peaches from forming.

There is a spray to prevent fruit set. Here is an article that discusses pros and cons and proper use. http://www.mortonarb.org/trees-plants/tree-and-plant-advice/horticulture-care/preventing-or-reducing-fruit-ornamental-trees
