I too have trouble getting Surround to stick to my plum tree, also my pears to some extent. I added a bit of soap which improved adhesion a bit.

Betsy, I added soap last year because I was also concerned. This year I decided to focus on the coverage of the approach to the plum instead (the limb the curc would walk up), and I ended up with many fewer strikes than last year. So I'm not sure it is a problem if almost nothing is sticking to the fruit.

I am surprised that you say the main curculio season is over for you, I had to look see where you are. Probably a little behind us in the season. As I understand it, the infested fruit that is falling here now will produce a new crop of adults to go hit the late peaches.
I have never noticed any significant late curculio damage myself, and would also be curious if others have seen such damage in peaches. I may have gotten some and had assumed it was moths without looking too carefully.
