When spraying for insects last weekend at my hunting camp, I saw gypsy moth caterpillars and some other kinds of caterpillars on the apple trees - but saw none on the crabapple trees or any sign of eaten leaves on them. Looks like lots of fruit set on the crabs as well ( the ones old enough to bear ). Has anyone else noticed little, if any, insects chomping on their crabapple trees? Is there something naturally un-appealing about crabs that keeps the bugs away for the most part? I know Sandbur is a fan of crabs. Maybe he and some of you guys who grow crabs can give your insight into this. Seems like a big plus as far as spray $ goes.
