There are a few ways that you can safely deter pests from your tree. I like to boil "mum" (chrysanthemum) leaves along with some sliced hot peppers in water for a few minutes. Take this strain and put it into a bottle when it is cool. Add Rosemary oil, or neem oil, or garlic extract, or even all three to the water, and spray the trees and fruits. Wash as good as you can to get the spicy off before you eat it. Usually it doesn't take too long to get washed off by rain naturally if you stop using it a week prior to harvest.
