Florida is home to beautiful foliage. There’s nothing quite like the smell of jasmine blooms, the shade provided by a live oak tree, or the tropical scene created by sago palms. Taking care of all of the trees & shrubs on your property can be overwhelming, especially when you are dealing with lawn pests or disease.
At Florida Pest Control, we are committed to doing our part in ensuring plants, shrubs, and trees remain healthy and thriving. Whether you are in need of tree maintenance or shrub disease control, our lawn care experts can help.
Effective Shrub Pest Control
Florida shrubs are the target of many a pest problem. Florida Pest Control can keep your shrubs pest-free with our Three Seasons Premium Shrub Program. This program consists of services performed during the spring, summer, and fall—when your shrubs need them the most. Along with products applied for insect and mite control, fertilizer applications are also included. At Florida Pest Control, we’ll protect your shrubs & trees from a variety of pests including:
- Scale insects, including Asian Cycad scale
- Mealy bugs
Similar to other living things, plants also need nutrients. Without proper nutrients, shrubs can become difficult to care for or revive. At Florida Pest, our lawn care experts will apply a premium grade, specially formulated fertilizer to your shrubs. This fertilizer will assist in maintaining the health of your shrubs.

Oil Applications for Pest Control
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.
Moss Control for Trees
Live moss acts like a sponge absorbing moisture, which increases its weight. If a branch becomes too weighed down by moss, it can easily break off. 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 cockroaches and rodents may use moss as a harborage area. When you work with Florida Pest, any moss will be dead between 8 to 12 weeks after treatment. It will gradually disintegrate and disappear over the course of 12 months.
