What Is Harming My Peaches?
We live in northeast Pa. We have a 5-6 year old dwarf peach tree. We treated the scab and still get peaches that look like an insect "stung" or bit them. A droplet of clear sap-like material is on the outside of the peaches. I can't find out what it is and have yet to eat one of my own peaches. Can anyone please help me? Thank you.
You could try this home made insect spray; pepper and garlic spray 1/2 cup of fresh hot peppers 2 large cloves of garlic 2 cups of water 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil. Liquefy ingredients in a blender and strain the mixture through a sieve lined with a handkerchief. Transfer into a spray bottle and label. Spray the upper and lower leaf surfaces of plants that show insect damage. This spray contains enough hot volatile oils to burn the chewing and sucking mouth parts of insects, but wear rubber gloves and eye protection as this can burn your skin and eyes, hope this fix's your problem
