OFM in peaches.....Current consensus?

I need a quick update from the collective wisdom on how to handle Oriental Fruit Month…I’m seeing the “flagging”, wilting shoot ends on all six of my trees.

Is the current thought on treatment to:

  1. remove the infected ends
  2. use Triazicide Once and Done (by Spectracide) ? (spraying the tips)

  1. Ignore it.

Peach twig borer causes the same damage east of the Mississippi. I view it as a free summer pruning. Damage is about one tip in ten. If it were a lot worse I’d have another viewpoint.
