Organic Pesticides & Fungicides for Fruit Trees

Fruit trees are popular target for pest infestation or fungi growth because of attraction of fruit and added moisture these trees utilize in producing fruit. Using organic pesticides and fungicides can help prevent infestation while keeping fruit healthy and edible.

Organic Definition

Organic pesticides and fungicides are naturally derived as opposed to synthetically derived. Using organic products does not automatically mean your fruit tree is being cultivated organically.

Types

Pesticides can be baits, lures, repellents or additives that work for different types of pests (examples are bactericides, insecticides, rodenticides and herbicides). Fungicides are a type of pesticide focusing on rendering fungus ineffective.

Function

Pesticides keep insects and bacteria from destroying fruit, flowers or tree components. Fungicides prevent wilting, mold coatings, scabs and rotting of plant tissue.

Ingredients

Naturally derived pesticides and fungicides use garlic, tea tree oil, eucalyptus oil and pyrethrum extract as a base. These help reduce the effects of pests without adding poisonous components to fruit that will be consumed.

Misconceptions

Even with the use of organic pesticides and fungicides, no fruit tree is completely resistant to insects that damage fruit. At best, you are fighting insects and pests that attack other parts of the fruit tree.
