    Does anyone use this? Anyone heard anything about it? We have a young orchard in Middle TN and have the normal bug and fungal problems, but don't want to use chemicals. Surround sounds like a great solution from what I've read, just wondered if anyone has any practical experience with it. We've ordered some for this yr, will let everyone know how it goes.

    We use it on our apple trees. works to keep the bugs off, doesn't deter the deer ;)

    Does it help with fungal problems? Our dogs won't let the deer come around. Makes me feel a little better about spending a small fortune on dog food every month.

    Well I'm assuming since we haven't developed any fungal problems, it's working....or we're the luckiest apple growers alive :)
