    I would avoid misting the flower stalks, as it can wash pollen off. Covering them with plastic bags while you spray should fix that issue
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Kind of figured that with the pollen on the male flowers but wasn't sure with the female
    Maybe that's why I didn't have any luck last year
    I washed all the baby batter off / LOL

    Yeah...you prolly did...and the female flowers are sticky, so you don't really wanna wash the stickem off either.
