Is it safe to spray fruiting citrus trees with homemade rhubarb pesticide .

Fruit and Citrus • Pests

Hi James, 

Thank you for contacting Yates. 

It's really difficult to say if the homemade pesticide is suitable for edible fruit tree in terms of the withholding time and its efficacy. I would suggest controlling pests by spraying fruiting citrus tree with APVMA proved products such as 'Yates Nature's Way Citrus & Ornamental Spray (Pyrethrum Plus Oil Pest Spray)'. Controls a wide variety on insects pests on many edibles and ornamentals.
