Main Phone 2015 Fruit Growers Warned to Battle Peach Tree Pests Peach trees should be treated foi borers now provided this was nol done last Fall, according to County Agent Keith Bilbrc.v. Although October is the best time for treatment results can be had by trailing the trees early in April, he jwinted out. Paradichlorobcnzenc. visually called PDB. is the material commonly used for treating peach trees, Mr Bilbrcy stated. In making the treatment, the ground around the tree should be levelled and a death ring of PDB crystals Is placed around the tree one to two Inches from the bark. One ounce is used on a full-grown tree with smaller amounts to be used on younger trees. A low mound of earth is then built around the tree trunk to con- :ine the gas. These mounds should jo torn clown in June, he pointed out. Pnradtchlorobenzcne is not to be used on apple or pear trees, Mr. Bilbrey warned.
