If I can just chime in here....I would be curious about any bee-safe spray/methods for apple trees too. We have at least a dozen oooold apple trees around our property that still bear. I have never sprayed them, but have wanted to. We still munch the apples, but would like to get more use out of them.
You want me to shoot my friend and email and find out exactly what he uses?
I truly hope you don't "shoot" your friend.... ;) LOL, but I would like to know what those fake apples are. Sparky, I am glad you started this thread. I have just never got around to asking.
