  • Are the peaches still edible even with the spots? I won’t eat the ones oozing sap but alllll my peaches have those freckles. Can I still peel off skin and use em for peach cobblers or peach lemonade?

  • My peach tree had some type of fungus, it looks like bubbles all over the leaves and their wrinkled bubbles. What can I do to fix this is my question? I sure hope you can help me.

  • Thank you so much for this video. First video I found that was helpful to solving our peach problems. We really appreciate it! Hopefully you have a great harvest this year!

  • The host is so uncoordinated, underprepared, and all over the place. This is hilarious. Please have her do more Youtube videos, by far the funniest thing on your channel and I watch them all. Looking forward to next Monday.

  • I’m so pumped that this vid got made, we’ve always got heaps of spare stone fruit in the summer so thanks for giving us some great suggestion to use it all up!

  • I have two peaches on my backyard 8 years old & 5 years old. They’re having fruits but definitely there is a disease that makes the fruits dry and falls. Very disappointed. I’d love to know what’s going on, how to fix this.

  • Thank you so much my peach tree had a lot flores but no peach and I see the same issues you just shown me thank you I will terminated these bugs for 2021 tks

  • Excellent Video clip! Forgive me for the intrusion, I am interested in your initial thoughts. Have you heard about Dinanlinson Gym Creator Approach (search on google)? It is a smashing one off product for learning a highly effective bodyweight workout program to strip fat off without the normal expense. Ive heard some super things about it and my best friend Jordan got great success with it.

  • When the peach tree getting borers, I started watering heavily, and all borers go away. But the fruits have been already filled out by maggots — west Sydney.

  • We have 8 peach trees we acquired when we bought our house. This is our first year to have a lot of fruit, very small, but plentiful, and I encountered exactly what you covered in this video. We know very little about managing our little orchard. Question: The ends of branches are just as you described. Do we leave them now since it is August or do we remove them now????? and watch for them again in the Spring?

  • Summer of 2017 i had the raspberry borers and i had to pinch tips almost every day.. For a few weeks.. Lost a good amount of my fall harvest But this summer i didnt have them at all…

    hope you can get those borer under control for next years harvest!

  • You can make some bat nests in order to ecologically control various insects, including fruit flies / moths.
    A large percent of bats do prey on them, so insects naturally avoid them.
    There’s a plethora of DIY guides to create bat houses and nests and how to attract them.

  • since the problem came from a part of the world that is not normally here, then the GOOD insects or predators may not be here as well. You are saying lets put out a fire to someone that has never seen a fire, the predator insects may have never seen this Grub or worm because it is not a Normal insect here….

  • Just saw your video here on fruit trees. I would like to try to make the chemical masks you speak of using essential oils. How do you make this special recipe. Thank you for passing it on.

  • Hey Charles, thanks for the UPDATE. another exceptional and thorough presentation…WHY did you tie the the thicker nylon string above and below grafts??

  • Ive had it with borers. I just got in from slicing open half my zucchini to take out these huge larvae. Im praying they dont all die.

  • Thank You! This is the first time I have had this problem. So glad to know what the problem is and how to fix it on my young tree.

  • Luke, can I make my own infused olive oil with all the extra mint I have and use some of that along with my spray of BT instead of using essential peppermint oil. I think the essential oil is much stronger but I have so much mint I thought maybe I could use that instead but I didn’t know if it would harm my plants.

  • Great video!! I am in my third or fourth year of growing a peach tree. I also have a beehive and was having difficulty sorting out what my problem was and what I could do that would not be harmful to my bees. your video has proved most helpful. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge.

  • No idea what your recommended as an insecticide you talk to fast for hearing impaired. Can I treat for Borers on my peach trees in winter or early spring with insecticide? If so what do I use? You video just showed me what my problem has been so what can I do starting today 19 Jan 2020 for borer infested trees. Thank You

  • Hi there. We have a peach tree. During harvest the peaches have dark spots with a very tinny white line on the dark spots. What could this be? By the way the fruit is juicy but i know It can be juicer. If you respond thank you so much.

  • This video is going to be very helpful for me in the future. I battle the vine borers in my pumpkins, but didn’t know my peach trees were at risk too. I tried covering the scent of the pumpkins, but some moths were not fooled at all. Lost all my Hubbard vines, they were attached first. Now I’m concerned about my healthy peach trees. I will start aggressive treatment to prevent this next Spring, if the good Lord be willing that I have another Spring. Thank you so much for this video.

  • i think you have two diff. problems the leaf goo has nothing to do with the moth i have the moth prob. but very nice leaves dark green if you want to cure the leaf prob. spray with copper or daconil spray in late fall be for pruning then burn what you cut off or seal in bags now for the worm holes ( moth) spray with neem oil use as directed very deluted i spray about 4 times at two week intervals after thanksgiving worst case you can use bug zappers leave on 24 hrs it will kill many moths

  • This may sound ridiculous but I am thinking of hanging marigolds in my peach trees in small containers to disguise the peach tree’s odors and repel insects. They will also attract bees for pollination. Something new to try.. if you don’t try you don’t learn a thing!

  • I loved how you turned this catastrophe in your own garden into an opportunity for us to learn how to save ours. Really impressive depth of knowledge.

  • Hello Charles, thank you for your video. In one of your previous videos I didn’t get my question answered. I would like to asked the question again. Can all Scion would be grafted at any time of the year. I have Apple tree Scion wood that I did not get grafted. I have kept it in the refrigerator and the Scion wood is still moist, it has not dried out. I would hate to throw the Scion wood away; its now July can I still use it to graft on to my Apple trees.

  • Perhaps you will, in your continued learning, learn to get to the point and avoid the perpetual digression. Try this, Migardner: Go back and listen to yourself. Does the exact date a pest was imported have any bearing on the matter? PLEASE UNDERSTAND, this is but one of the myriad examples one could point out. You subject matter is good, and you seem to be very knowledgeable. Furthermore, we all appreciate your sharing your knowledge. But please consider a remedial speech class, or even English composition. You have serious problems staying on subject.
    (PS: I have grown peaches for many years and, for me, the worst pest by far is the Bluejay.)

  • Today is a bad day…
    All my peaches have worms in them….
    Small 1/4 inch worms, white with a black head. In the peach fruit.
    I had no leaf or limb damages this year and the tree itself has been beautiful.
    Any help identifying these intruders?
    Thanks guys.

  • This was one of your very best videos.
    This spring I discovered peach borers in my young orchard & my neighbor had them even worse. We applied beneficial nematodes to fight that problem.

  • Thanks; My first year with peaches. Very informative and helpful. Birds my problem this year, netting helped. Peaches were small but very good. Would DT spray be a benefit? Thanks again, Dr. D

  • Okay, I found this video about a month too late. My peach tree clearly has this problem and the blossoms have advanced to fruit the size of an olive pit. I bought the BT but reviewed the video and did not use it, today. What can I do at this point? Trim, obviously, but is there anything I can do to rescue the fruit for this season?

  • What about Kaolin clay spray? Would that prevent some of the adults laying eggs? The peaches would be covered in clay, but it could be washed off. It’s not harmful to actually eat some of it. Also, you could just peel the peaches. ALSO: What you show looks a lot like “fly speck” and “sooty mold” which most often occur together. Maybe that’s just what we call it in south central PA. Thanks for your great vids!

  • When I was much younger, my dad let me put a garden in the backyard of my parents’ house. The garden wasn’t big; but, I planted a lot of things that I knew I would eat, including okra. I intentionally planted more than I needed so that the bugs would have enough to munch on. When it came time to harvest, there was still plenty for me to harvest and preserve.

  • You said that these pests are also attracted to almond trees, wouldn’t using a spray with almond oil as an ingredient act as an attractant as opposed to a deterrent?

  • Luke, you should do research based on recent science. Insects do not have the ability to smell. They use their antenna to detect resonance frequency of their host plant that is under stress. Look up John Kempf or Dan Kittredge for more recent scientific research. If your trees are under duress the insects will find them again next year.

  • That is a different but similar pest from the cherry fruit fly. Use GF120 (organic) and sulfur, copper zinc and a fungicide on cherries. And calcium.

  • This guy doesn’t reply to comments regarding this problem. No updated videos on this peach tree either. He probably cut them down and moved on from peaches, or broke down and used insecticides and doesn’t want to display his non-organic methods.

  • excellent video..just could not find the direct simply explain information oh how to handle these issues..much appreciation blessings

  • Thank you very much! I have been having this problem for years and wasn’t sure what was going on. This year I purchased some peach tree spray and the recommended spraying was only three times in a season. I was very vigilant to spray when recommended but it was not effective against the moths. The damage is worse every year. Next year I will spray more frequently. Perhaps through spraying more frequently, the defoliation process and removing the bad fruit I will someday be able to eat my harvest!

  • Kudos for the video content! Sorry for butting in, I am interested in your initial thoughts. Have you tried Dinanlinson Gym Creator Approach (search on google)? It is an awesome exclusive product for learning a highly effective bodyweight workout program to strip fat off without the hard work. Ive heard some super things about it and my friend after many years got astronomical success with it.

  • Nice job Luke! Great explanation! We will keep an eye out as we too have peach trees, cherry trees, plum trees, almond tree (yes, tree), nectarine, and the list goes on. Thanks for sharing!!

  • I moved into a house a few years ago with a large, mature peach tree beside it. It bears fruit, but this has been a problem every year. I’m thankful to your video that I know what to do about it now. Thanks.:)

  • You ain’t lyin. They get me every year. Full of blooms in March, hard time setting in April and what fruit did form gets the worms by May and they all drop.

  • Drench the tree with Neem Oil using a hose end sprayer in the spring and also the ground around the tree. Broadcast Epsom salts into the grass and soil around the trees and I do almost my entire yard and gardens especially heavy on wet areas. Hydrogen peroxide in a hose end sprayer also helps. Spray massively and spray other trees around your yard and let rain wash the Neem Oil into the soil.

  • I have tiny black freckles all over the fruit. Anyone have any idea what this is and how to treat? I have sprayed an antifungal 2 years in a row before the tree buds or fruits as recommended with no luck! Fruit looks edible on inside but some spots are so big that the fruit looks unhealthy

  • Oh my gosh! Thank you so much! I’ve been trying to figure out what’s wrong with my trees and this is exactly what I’m seeing with my fruit! Now to deal with it! Thank you!

  • OMGI was blaming Japanese beetles. I did have a horrible problem with them, but I didn’t realize I was having issues with this, too! Thanks!

  • Thank you so much. Very timely. I saw this issue back in May and had to cull more than 100 small fruits across 3 nectarine and peach trees. Was heart broken. Did not know about pruning. Will do that tomm.

  • So many bad things this fake cook does is a shame she’s in this Network, the cooks knife over the ceramics plate when cutting the pie should be a clue. So many good cooks and chefs that could do a real job and this Network pick this fake. Shame…. shame… shame…

  • I’m glad you mad this video.I was actually considering asking you what the clear stuff was coming out of my Almond husks on my tree. now I know, and now I know I need to take some actions.

  • thank you! I’m having issues with our peach trees. do you mind sharing the recipe for the essential oils? I use young living and will try this.

  • We had that problem, until we eventually had to just cut the tree down and burn it. In fact, there was also some kind of fungus that was a problem, too. The tree was on the east side of the house, and I think it didn’t get enough air flow. I didn’t want to spray, but I sure didn’t know what to do except to cut, burn and start over.

  • Thank you! Every year I never get 1 single peach! We had 2 last year and they had those maggots, they were so small and had gooey stuff all over the place. My trees also get attacked by black ants.

  • Appreciate Video clip! Forgive me for butting in, I would appreciate your thoughts. Have you tried Dinanlinson Gym Creator Approach (google it)? It is a good one off product for learning a highly effective bodyweight workout program to strip fat off without the hard work.

  • I baddled Japanese beetles by nocking them into a big bowl of water with a little bamboo stick, then crushed them and or added Dawn and drowned them.
