Can Hi-Yield 38-Plus Insect Control 38% Permethrin be used in the soil where Peach Borers have started on roots? Also on the trunk where there holes to kill them? How often should you spray for them and to start?


Hi Yield 38 Plus is not safe for use on or near any edible vegetation. You would need to keep this off of the foliage and bark, and away from the root zone. Captain Jacks Deadbug Brew or Sevin Insecticide Concentrate would be a great option for a spray on the foliage, bark, and roots of the tree. You can also use a trap like the Monterey Peach Tree Borer Trap to try and reduce populations on your tree.
