The old method of moth balls at the base of the tree [to kill borers already in trunk and causing damage] beneath a mound of soil could possibly be detoxified by the use of Camphor crystals. Will it kill borers as paradichloro benzene does or only act as a deterrent? If the latter then the addition to number 3 may be more appropriate.
What about other essential plant oils that may help with deterrence? Maybe adding it to clay could make it more effective for PTB. Use calcium oxide unslaked lime or calcium hydroxide slaked-mixed with water calcium oxide lime not calcium carbonate unburnt ground lime stone. Review old literature recommendations to avoid "bark" injury potential. If you trial any of this please report your results! More to the point do seedlings or self rooted trees have less PTB damage?
If being a seedling helps to prevent PTB damage; then I would say that there is a strong case to utilize self rooting of cultivars, since it is as easy to accomplish with peaches as doing budding. Self rooted peaches demonstrated higher levels of Ca uptake than the same varieties that were grafted; this should equate to stronger cell walls and thus more disease resistance. This was from report by Gary Couvallin sp? Meadow culture is growing trees as a row crop and replacing them about every 5 years; with tree plant densities in the thousands per acre, thus the need for easy mass propagation, i.
If you are interested I can relay the technique used for rooting cuttings; just contact me. Dan Lefever SE Penna, zone6b-7a biorat comcast. I am circling back on my Peach Tree Borer post. This year i added extra Surround to my spring tree paste application and really slathered it on, especially on the rough textured bark of my older trees. I had used this procedure last year as well but used a weaker solution and used a thinner tree paste.
I did not see amy new borer holes this year and my traps had fewer insects. This is a wonderful improvement from last year. A new material for dealing with borers is available now. It is a water soluble neem extract broad based botanical insecticide called Azasol from Arborjet the landscape tree systemic injection company.
Injection is effective for use in trees 4 inches in diameter or greater. It is an effective "natural" control for emerald ash borer. Unfortunately peach trees are at there most susceptible when one to two inches in diameter and one or two borers can completely girdle a tree.
It could be used in combination with a silicone based carrier called PentraBark which translocates materials it is able to carry through bark lenticels. There is plenty of concern that PentraBarks breakdown products are much more toxic than the initial chemical and potentially a potent endrocrine disrupter; as I recall [discussions can be found on line]. This all becomes a nearly chemical approach and not at all an organic ecosystem approach; but in the case of the unnatural; contrived ecosystem of street and urban tree settings it may be much more realistic than organo-phosphates or dithiocarbamate fungicides, etc.
It may be an acceptable way to protect a large planting of new peach trees for a few years until size girth and a better balanced ecosystem can overcome the potential tree destruction via PTB. Is this water soluble neem able to be more systemically absorbed on its own in a water based application than oil based neem? Is its insecticidal activity longer lasting once it becomes systemic?
What becomes of the rest of the insect ecosystem balance when it is systemic? How effective is neem for OFM? If it has good activity against OFM would it be effective for late generations which become much less distinct in their egg hatch timing; if when it becomes systemic it has a much longer residual activity. Are there any known longterm problems with ingestion of concentrated azadrichan by birds or mammals. New here and new home orchardist on an acre.
Our trees are mostly 4 years old and we haven't done anything after planting except prune and add ramial wood chips in a circle under drip line. Someone told me recently that my trees have PTB. We dug the eggs out from the base of each tree and now have a trench circling base. We are going to fill with the gravel Michael recommends in his book rather than backfilling with soil.
I see where the borers also entered at the SW side of trunks we did not even wrap trunks and now I want to wrap them but wonder if I should apply a paste first before wrapping? Do you recommend using DE as a paste? Our extension office may know. Also researching beneficial nematodes. We have 2 sheep, chickens, bees, and I am also trying to learn to grow food. It may be too late to save my stone fruit trees Beth, Get pheromone traps for PTB to determine timing, extension may or may not really know exactly.
Install away from peach trees to decoy males away; in a small planting it may help enough to control them, but don't count on it, as only one borer can girdle a small caliper tree. Gemplers has a very complete list of traps available in single quantities. Edited 1 time s. I wanted to share a method that is so far working quite well for me in the battle of the borers. Fall of I noticed the typical gummosis and frass associated with greater PTB all the way around the tree.
After an afternoon of removing the dirt at the base, poking and prodding for larvae, I left the dirt removed so that the bark could dry out and toughen up.
In spring, before the weather warmed up enough for the PTB to become adults, I tried cedar chips at the base of the tree to discourage the moths from laying eggs. Of course, there were some leftover pupae in the soil around the trunk so last summer I still had to fish out some larvae, but the infestation wasn't as bad as the year before, and the tree seemed to be healthy.
The problem with the cedar chips is they are cumbersome and difficult to separate from the soil for checking for PTB activity. He immediately began working on ground-breaking, sustainable solutions in tree health care and formulated products that were injected into the vascular system of trees.
With a mission to develop the most effective formulations and delivery systems for plant health, Arborjet continues to innovate in an effort to provide environmental stewardship. As a result of this focus, Arborjet manufactures the most effective formulations and delivery systems for plant health care. Each product is the result of collaborative laboratory research and extensive field trial work conducted across the US and worldwide.
Additionally, our experience working with all types of pesticides and soil amendments, gives us access to testing locations and the ability to design testing protocols that assure our products are of the highest quality. It has no oil and is systemic, making this the only Neem product that can be applied as a soil drench, foliar spray, chemigation bath or trunk injection. Similarly, the botanical oils and extracts in Eco-Mite Plus and Eco-PM are specially combined, boasting the highest concentrations in the industry, without burning.
They provide patented technologies to reduce drought stress, enhance root growth and promote cation exchange. Moving forward, Arborjet will continue to hone its Eco-line of products, providing professionals, gardeners, growers and even homeowners with safe, high-quality plant health-care products.
