organic insecticides

I have 2 plum, 3 apple, and 1 cherry tree. The apples are starting to get bigger and I'm noticing things are eating them. I also have an aphid problem with the plum trees. Can anyone recommend a good organic spray to both treat and prevent the problem of other creatures eating our fruit? :D

I just used the Search function available on the upper left-hand corner of each page with the phrase

organic insect control

and received over 100 hits. Some of these may be posts within the same thread, but there are dozens of separate discussions.

Good luck!

I don't know of a spray to help birds or animals from eating your fruits but Safer Brand has many organic sprays for insects.Just visit their website.Their sprays don't harm beneficial insects either.

I ordered a big container of neem oil. There were sooo many suggestions and people partial to certain things, but neem oil in general seemed to have the best results and people like it.
