Peach tree bugs

    6 responses

Avalee starts with ...
Our peach tree is infested with these little nasties - dark brown/black bugs that have covered several branches and leaves. Can anyone tell me what they are and the best way to treat the tree - preferably organically? This tree has been very good to us in the past - groaning with fruit every summer with little or no intervention on our part so i am hoping we can do something about this.
Many thanks.

Hi Avalee,

They are Black Peach aphids. My peach tree has just been covered with them. Any pyrethrium based spray kills them. You can buy made up products in any place that sells garden products.

Hi Avalee,

You are very welcome. I have seen the pyrethrium in a concentrate form that you then mix up yourself. Its harder to source but Bunnings may have it.

Hi Smudger

It would be better if you can upload a picture of the damaged fruit for easier and more accurate disease I.D. You can use your phone to take pictures and it will be stored in your gallery. Then log on to Daley's forum and click edit on the lower left side of the body of the letter entry. Then choose file on the upper side of the body. Then you can select gallery from your phones drop down menu from there select the picture of the peach you have taken. Lastly click submit on the lower left side of the body to upload the picture. If everything fails ask someone to help you out.

Happy Gardening :-)
