I sprayed my peach tree too soon last year and impacted the bees. The blooms have come and gone, and there is small fuit starting to grow. When do I spray to protect the fruit?

Now is a perfect time to spray. Spray every 3-4 weeks. I would recommend using neem oil. It is good for killing the fungus and pests that may affect the tree but will not hurt beneficial insects like bees. Here is more information about neem oil:
