Control is three-pronged. Sprays of dormant oil like HI Yield Dormant Oil, narrow range oil or pesticides formulated with spinosad ( Captian Jacks Deadbug Brew) while the peach trees are in their dormant stage should be followed by sprays in early spring that target the larvae. A spray of spinosad or Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) while the tree is in bloom is effective on young larvae. A second spray of Bt is normally performed within 10 days of the first. Spinosad, Bt or carbaryl may be sprayed after bloom. Follow label directions carefully.
