Ok so do I even need the Malathion?
I'm applying dormant spray in middle of winter here:
• Sprayed Bonide All Seasons Horticultural & Dormant Spray Oil (at the recommended 2.5 oz. per gallon) & Fixed copper (1 oz. per Gallon) on all the peach, apple, cherry tree’s & grape vines with good coverage. Used 6 gallon
As you can tell, I take and keep good records/ Notes
