If someone wanted to mix insecticide w/ their crab fungicides, they could control tent cats as well. But scab control is 1st and foremost when it comes to crabs.
I usually have insecticide mixed with my fungis. I prefer a more broad spectum mix than a more target specific app I suppose.
For example my second round of fruit tree sprays corresponds with my first of two Spruce and Pine I and D's so I don't want to miss anything and include insect control also. It's not terribly IPM'ish but it gets the control I need.
I love tree spraying. A lot more than lawn spraying.
