Plum Circulio

Your article on plums, suggests using a low toxicity spray for controlling Plum Curculio beetles. I need some advice on a suitable product to use: one that is readily available. In past years I have used one spraying of 50% Malathion(2 tsp. per gallon) at petals dropping time. Without this one time spraying I get a very low crop of plums. Reading on the internet the information about Malathion you find frightening information, so I would like to use a safer insecticide. Can you give me instructions?
