    <font color="#800000" size=4 face="apple chancery">Come up with a product, organic or otherwise, that will keep pecan trees from blooming and we'll get rich. It must not damage the tree however.

    Many of my customers hate the mess made almost year around by their pecan trees. Other wise they would be a perfect tree. Except for the aphids. LOL</font>

    And what about webworms? Of course you would only have webworms if you sprayed the paper wasps with insecticide. Leave the paper wasps alone and you will not have webworms, or hornworms, or many other caterpillars.

    I think they're getting close to figuring out an organic way to keep pecans fully producing year after year instead of every other year. Of course that doesn't help you :)
