Thanks for that Alan, but actually that is why I'm posting this.....homeowner packaging just isn't enough for me on some things. For example, just last winter I bought a 5 pound bag of imidan and its almost gone now (1 full season and 1/2 of another). I have gone through 5 bottles of the Immunox over the last season and 1/2, so that is why I wondered if I'd be cheaper to stop buying those small homeowner bottles at Lowes. I do still have a good deal of the Kocide 3000 bag I bought from Keystone, but if I'd been using homeowner packaging bottles I'd have gone through a few. I have used almost 1/2 the 1.25 gallon of sticker (pinene II (generic Nu Film) even though it only calls for 1/2 tsp per gallon). Remember, I'm spraying about 125 trees, 50 bushes/brambels/other fruit plants, and several hundred garden plants in a 1/2 acre garden. Of course not all sprays are used on all plants, but it really adds up every 2 years.; Thats why I've tried to go to larger, more commercial quantities when possible- especially on things with a decent shelf life.
BTW....I was really interested in what you said about not seeing BR destroy flowers. Everything I've read the last few days about BR talks about how it starts with flowers and how important it is to get it on before the flowers bloom....but just like you, I've NEVER seen it do that at my place. It only hits peaches that are starting to ripen.
The two sprays mentioned in the link you provided that I keep seeing over and over on lots of different sites are :Luna and Indar. I understand (a little bit) how they are different, but both seem to get a lot of attention. Sounds like you wouldn't recommend Rally or even Myclo, so would you recommend Luna or Indar? If so, which one? If not, what would you suggest. I've seen you mention several things you do not think are effective and/or not used commercially, but I've missed where you recommend what SHOULD be used. Thanks.
