My peach tree gets covered with microscopic black bugs (I think they are blackfly or mites). These bugs smother all the emerging leaves and destroy them so the tree looks like it is dying. The bugs also attack my cherry leaves and plum leaves. These mites are so persistent I have decided to take the scorched earth approach. I mixed this pest oil with pyrethrum and sprayed it on the affected trees. It knocked the pests down immediately. I then used pest oil by itself to attract beneficial insects. I noticed ladybirds on the tree within a couple of days. It's still early days. The little bugs are still attacking, but hopefully this plus the use of some spray with diluted detergent in it will keep them under control. My peach tree looks like it has leprosy, with so many bare branches, but the good news is, it has several leaves that haven't been destroyed by these pests. I check the tree every day to see how it's going. I also fed it with rock dust and cow manure to encourage it to persevere. For my next trick, I am planning to use pest oil against fruit fly etc on my other fruit trees. I also use nets to protect against birds and larger insects, but these tiny mites are so small they get through the nets.
