You need the sticky stuff.... Tanglefoot... and 4 kits. Tanglefoot's cheap. It's the shipping they get you on when you buy that since it's under $10. The Tanglefoot will last pretty long so I'd only buy 1 container for 1 tree. See if one of those sites sells both to cut down on shipping and handling. Your tree isn't a $27 tree anymore.... it grew up to be at least a $270 tree.

My poor tree. I see goo oozing out in more and more areas. I dig to no avail. I can't find the grubs, my fingers, sticky full of pitch.
I think my digging is doing more harm than good. I'm afraid I may loose her but I'll go through the motions trying to stall things as long as I can. So far............ I've not seen any adults.

Our nectarine tree squeaked through another summer. We'll see if she has another year left in her.
I think not.... She stands RIGHT next to where the city will be digging to replace the old drainage culvert.
The loss of probably about half of her roots along with the insect damage may just prove too much for her.

We've never had much luck with peaches/nectarine trees.

I think they are just too stressed after a cold winter and succumb to any disease that came along.

I remember one old peach tree that bore well even with the amber goo.

My mom planted garlic around the base.

No it didn't seem to do much good, Every peach tree we had would get the amber goo. If they produced a few before dying we were happy.


Nothing like a home-grown peach fresh off the tree.


You really want to plant garlic in October.

YOU said it! I would "like" to plant a replacement but it's such a short live delicacy. I won't spend the extra cash to keep the insects at bay as I can buy a WHOLOTTA nectarines with the amount they charge for the stuff that might ward them off!

Probably the best answer would be to set up a summer get together with a member South of the Mason-Dixon line.

I wonder if they have the peach borer down south too?
