You do have to keep going, the cure is not instant. Also try Winter Tar oil Wash (substitute) This is a soap based thing and it does dissolve the waxy covering.

My apple trees are having a similar problem, on this site: " " I found out that the problem are the Woolly Aphids.

Washing them away with the hoose helps but I am trying to find out what is best to do.
