brad, i start in the spring with orchard spray, its an insecticide and fungicide on all my fruit trees. then thru the summer, use sevin to keep the japanses beetles from stripping the trees. also use lindane borer spray to keep them rascals out of the bark. have apple, plum, peach, apricot, cherry and illinois blueberry.

Hey Glenn!

You really have a selection. I use dormant oil on my trees at the end of the season and it really helps too.

The first year that we put the orchard in we let the bugs get a foothold on the young trees and had to battle them all summer with some of them almost completely defoliated. Japanese beetles....I hate them.

Do you fertilize your apple trees? if so at the end of the season or in the springtime? I am thinking I might spread some cow manure around the trees in the fall to see if I can increase the blossoms in the spring.

Hope all is well in Ill. Say hi to yer better half.

i use fruit tree spikes to fertilize. my nurseryman that i get my stock from advises against a lot of nitrogen on fruit trees. he says it causes tree groth of branches and leaves, but they dont put much fruit on. i put the spikes down in the early spring. i bought one of those bulb planter drill bits for my cordless drill, run some holes around the tree and drop the spikes in the hole. i use 3 spikes per tree. for jap beetles, i keep liquid sevin on the trees and then also have the jap beetle traps out. i mount them on either 5 gallon pails or 30 gallon plastic drums. lot of guys say no to the traps, say it brings the beetles in. yup it does, but most all get caught in the traps. i'd rather have em in the traps than on my trees. first couple years i was getting 30 to 40 Gallons of beetles a week. now it get maybe 5 gallon a week between 6 traps. say hi to everybody up there!!
