Preventing Moth Infestation in Your Fruit Garden

There is nothing more unpleasant than biting into an apple off of the tree you have slaved over for so long, just to find that you have not been persevering enough with your pesticides.

Even though it appears like a hassle to constantly be spraying pesticides, it is something that you must not overlook. Spraying pesticides is a reasonably quick and easy procedure, and you should not have to do it too often at all.  It is worth it to just get out there every couple of weeks and spray in your yard.

Spraying can look like a time consuming operation. After all, you’ve got to go out and get all the supplies, combine the chemicals, apply them, and tidy up everything you used in the procedure. Occasionally you’ll even require a ladder to reach all sections of the trees. The whole process can take as long as four hours when you have several huge trees. Practicing this every 2 weeks can get quite tiresome and annoying. Nonetheless, you must always persevere. Normally being adamant in your steady spraying will help prevent infestations of things like moths, but at times it’s just not sufficient.

Usually you will be able to acknowledge when moths have laid eggs on your trees by the endings of the branches. If you discover something that appears like a group of moth eggs, you should automatically prune the branch you detected it on and destroy it. Check out the rest of the tree really good. Should the eggs hatch, you will have a huge number of moth larvae creeping around through your tree and into your fruits.

No one wants to be in the situation where you couldn’t find a single fruit on your tree that didn’t have a worm inside. And then end up having to cut down the entire tree then start completely over. Preventing the infestation of uninvited guests is much better than having to cut down a tree and start completely over  due to a little laziness.

If you have not taken up spraying pesticides in the past, you must go to your local gardening  store today. Figure out what pests are most prevailing in your area, and get the correct pesticides to keep them from ever visiting your trees.
