Use Organocide® BEE SAFE 3-in-1 Garden Spray as a Fruit Tree Fungicide

Protecting your trees against greasy spot citrus fungus and other pests doesn’t need to raise concerns about the safety of the edible fruit they bear. Organocide® BEE SAFE 3-in-1 Garden Spray is an Earth-friendly answer that’s derived from natural sesame and edible fish oils and intended for organic gardening. It’s a powerful defense against citrus fungus as well as fungus on other fruit trees. And when used as dormant oil it’s the most important spray to apply to these trees. That’s because BEE SAFE 3-in-1 Garden Spray also kills the adults and eggs of over-wintering soft bodied insects, mainly red mites and scales. This slows seasonal build-ups. And as its name suggests, the product is benign to beneficial pollinators when used as directed.

Here’s How to Apply It Throughout the Year

During dormancy, use an application rate of 4 fl. oz. per gallon of water and spray before the buds swell or before new growth starts in the spring. If applied after growth starts, the fresh new tissue can be damaged. The application date can range from late winter—when temperatures are above freezing (35-45o F) and when the weather forecast calls for nonfreezing temperatures for at least 24 hours after application—to late spring, when the weather forecast calls for no rain for at least 4 hours. Remember that in addition to fungus, harmful critters are hiding in crevices and cracks in the bark, therefore it is very important to achieve thorough coverage when spraying. After dormancy ends and new growth has become established, you can resume applying Organocide® BEE SAFE 3-in-1 Garden Spray effectively throughout the rest of the growing season as well. It’s safe enough to spray even at harvest time. So your prized fruits and vegetables can arrive on your family’s table chemical free.
