Should this product be used on recently planted apple trees?
Tim N on Apr 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I follow my University of Kentucky spray schedule for home fruit growers,
which tells me that pome fruits (apples and pears) need to be sprayed for fire blight. IT is an especially serious disease on these fruits, and that I should keep up with the recommended sprays from the time I plant my new Stark trees, not wait later in the year or the next year. I just sprayed again today with Ferti-lome Streptomycin. I have 34 trees from Stark and always follow my State recommended spray schedule. Stark has the right products for the backyard fruit grower and they give outstanding advice as well. R.S.
will this product effect honey bees?
Susan C on Jun 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is an antibiotic, because fire blight is a bacterial infection. To my knowledge it won't hurt honey bees, and i sprayed trees in bloom with it, but you may want to check with bee experts or county extension offices. It contains streptomycin sulfate, which is a strong antibiotic.
my santa rosa plum was loaded with blooms, i sprayed it with the fire blight solution and within a couple of days all the blooms looked like they had been singed by a blow torch. would this have caused the blooms to turn brown?
maggie on Apr 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I used ferti lome fire blight spray last year to spray 8 apple and pear trees that had a terrible problem with fire blight. I sprayed them twice, once at full bloom, then again about a month later.
There was no blossom wilt or any negative effects on the blooms on any of the trees that I saw. The fruit did well on all of the trees.

Without a doubt, the spray dramatically reduced the fireblight damage, especially to fruit set. There was still a few patches of fireblight to foliage in late summer, but it was minor compared to previous years.
I was going to apply this with a backpack sprayer. Is this product considered a wettable powder that is best used with a diaphragm pump in lieu of a piston pump? Any advice would be appreciated.
DENNIS C on Jul 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Used a 2 gallon pump up hand sprayer for every application. Worked fine in that. My father also used the product in an avt diaphragm sprayer worked well in that also. A backpack sprayer should do fine for normal applications.
Is the fruit edible if it was sprayed a month before harvest?
Weeze on Sep 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: According to the label, this spray is not intended to be used when fruit is present. I would take that to mean that the fruit should not be eaten if the fruit has been sprayed.
will it work on trees that already have blight?
Cheryl K on Jun 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This spray is recommended for use in early spring when the trees are blooming and just after the bloom period. If the trees already show signs of fire blight, it's best to prune out the infected wood, making sure to disinfect the pruning tool between each cut.

Fire blight spray.
This stuff has been a lifesaver for my trees & it also saved 2 of my josta-berry plants. Fire blight can kill a 3 year old tree is less than a week. If you have it , get this and use it....you won't be dissapointed and can see the results in just a few days.

Great product and service
I ordered 3 for the discounted price. The product is just what I need and I'm grateful for a great company like Stark Brothers to buy it from. I chose Stark Brothers not only for a fair price, but to support a 200+ year old nursery business .

Doesn't desolve
Like my title. This product does not dissolve in water and we had to constantly agitate the tank to keep the particles suspended. Other fire blight applications are much better then this.

Fire blight spray
Fire blight can occur in many fruit trees and once it happens the only solution is to cut out the branch taking care to avoid contact with other branches if possible and then spray the tree,. Now I spray once in June and again in July for prophylaxis this avoiding limb loss.

Fertilome Fire Blight Spray
This spray is expensive to use for our 34 fruit trees, but if you don't use it as one of the Fire Blight deterrents, you probably will have problems you wish you didn't have.

FertiLome Fire Blight Spray
This is absolutely necessary for me. Fire Blight is a major problem sometimes, and most garden stores do not carry the remedies. Sometimes I think I am the only person who grows pears, or Gala apples.

Made a big difference
Used Fertilome for the first time last year and noticed a great reduction in the fire blight on the two apple trees I have. I have sprayed two time so far this year, but it's a little early to tell what the effect will be.
I have apples about the size of a nickel right now(May). Would it be alright to spray fertileLome one more time? Chuck P.
