    There's a product called "Snipper". It's a deflowering hormone that can be injected into the tree to get rid of the gum balls.

    Timing is critical on the application though.

    Do a search for the product or if someone else can chime in with more info.... :)

    As stated above, Snipper is the product you want. Good luck.
