I hung moth balls, after reading about it, last night and they were on the tree this morning!

    Try taking old CDs, tie one end of a string through the center hole, and tie the other end on the tip of a tree branch. A gentle breeze will twist and turn them, causing the critters to leave the peaches alone.

    It's a food source...you can cover w netting but they are determined little boogers. My dog is a better deterrent than anything else.

    I tried the netting last year, but a cardinal got stuck in it, and they are more important than peaches! I have a dog, but not a fenced in yard.

    Tried this, too! I have collected more, maybe I didn't use enough, so I'll add to the moth balls. Thank you!

    Shoot firecrackers under the tree or close to it.

    Peaches are all gone. Pesticides next year!
