This sounds like multiple different problems affecting your trees. If you can send photos of the "bleeding" I might be able to hep you with that problem. Spider mites and other mites that attack fruit trees are usually a problem that is actually caused by spraying too much. The sprays kill the beneficial mites and insects that keep the pest mites in check. A dormant oil spray in the winter is usually the recommended strategy for protecting fruit trees from mites.
