Sterilizing a Fig Tree

elyakum added on December 1, 2016 | Answered

I have a lovely fig tree which gives us a lot of shade. However, it drops a lot of unripe figs at the beginning of the season and at the end attracts birds that eat half a fig and then drop the rest and bats who make a total mess. What can I use to sterilize the tree, and how and when do I apply it?
