I was just wondering if anyone knew whether or not spinosad was safe to use on fruit trees that hve fruit on them. I want to use it on my citrus trees for leafminers but they have fruits on them. I didn't think it would be a huge deal because I won't be eating the peel but I wanted opinions! Thanks!
