Spray before bagging?

Posted by bart1 6/7 Northern VA (My Page) on

I'm about ready to start bagging my apples and pears and I'm wondering if I should do one final spray before I put the bags on?

My last pesticide and fungicide spray was two weeks ago. WouldI need to reapply either spray before I put the bags on or should I just bag away?

The only reason I can see to spray before bagging is the length of time it might take you to bag all the fruit, during which, pests could be active.

RE: Spray before bagging?

I don't know what sprays you use but I don't like to work in my trees right after spraying. I am just a little South of you and with all the rains it has been hard to keep sprays on the trees. Oriental Fruit moths have already gotten some of the peaches, just recent as the jelly (pectin) is still clear. I don't see what another spray would do unless you spray and start bagging the same day or you get back into the same loop.
