Insect and Disease Control:
- Mealy bugs
Similar to other living things, plants need nutrients. Are your shrubs getting what they need to flourish? We can apply a premium grade, specially formulated fertilizer to your shrubs which will assist in maintaining their health and vitality.
Horticultural oil has been used for centuries to control certain shrub pests, such as aphids, mites and scales. It not only controls pests, but enhances the healthy appearance of the plants it is applied to. This service may be performed as needed or as part of our scheduled program. The seasonal oil program consists of two applications in the Spring and two in the Fall.
A classic image of the Southern landscape is Spanish moss draping from the limbs of a live oak tree. Although this may add to the charm of a property, there is a downside to having trees heavily laden with moss. Live moss acts like a sponge absorbing moisture, which increases its weight. If a branch becomes too weighed down by moss –you guessed it – the branch will break! Not only could the weight of moss damage a tree, it physically blocks out sunlight that trees need to grow. In addition, pests such as roaches and rodents may use moss as a harborage area! Our treatment for moss controls the moss and the moss seed, something that hand pulling just can’t do. Moss will be dead between 8 to 12 weeks after treatment. It will gradually disintegrate and disappear over the course of 12 months or more.
