Prolific fruit last year. Want to protect against fruit fly or other problems. Did use eco oil earlier in the year.

Best to remove the scale on your fig tree now while the scale is quite young and crawling. You can apply Yates Nature's Way Citrus & Ornamental Spray. To protect your figs against fruit fly attack, Yates have a product called Yates Nature's Way Fruit Fly Control. This is a low toxic solution with no withholding period. You will need to start spraying once fruit fly is detected. It can be applied either as a band or a spot spray to the trunk or lower foliage of the tree. For good control, repeat the application on a weekly basis. If it rains you will need to repeat the application. Trust you will harvest some delicious, sweet figs next year.
