Most of us love nature and greenery and that is why many of us have beautiful gardens and vegetable patches that we tend to with a lot of love and care. However, nature is not without its problems. All gardeners have to face bugs, insects and caterpillars that feed on fruits and vegetables.
All plants and trees attract bugs and caterpillars, especially fruit trees like orange trees. If you want to get rid of the bugs and insects on your orange tree, you may want to use an insecticide that does not harm or leave residue in and on the oranges.
Although it is best to use natural insecticide to get rid of the pests on your orange tree, the choice ultimately is very personal. However, there is a natural insecticide that is very effective not only for oranges but also other fruit trees. The name of this insecticide is Spinosad. All you have to do is spray this insecticide on your orange tree and then wait for the insects and bugs to ingest it.
Spinosad is fast acting; however, it is only effective on insects and bugs that consume parts of the orange tree. You can effectively use it against caterpillars, thrips, leafminers, borers and fruit flies. It is best to avoid spraying Spinosad when your orange tree is flowering.
If your orange tree is infested with caterpillars, think about using Bacillus thuringiensis. This insecticide is supposed to be biological in nature and only acts on caterpillars. You can also use Bayer Powerforce to get rid of leafminers. Bayer Powerforce contains cyflythrin and naphthalene and can help you get rid of majority of insects and bugs on your orange tree.
