Upon contact, the horticultural oil works to suffocate and smother any insect eggs left on the trees and shrubs from the previous year. One major benefit of this application is to assist the fruit trees in producing fruit with fewer insects. Being pro-active allows the flowering and fruition process to take place without immediate insect damage. This application is done during the early or late winter while the trees are dormant.
Active Insect Spray

They are designed to help control various tree pests including, but not limited to: Aphids, Spider Mites, Scale, and Root Weevils.
Some trees and shrubs can house a disease or fungus that requires treatment with special chemicals at certain times. Because this is a specialty service please contact our office for further information.
Walnut Husk Fly
For those customers that have Walnut trees and want to protect the summer crop of nuts, we offer a specially formulated and timed service to aid in this process. Typically, this service consists of two applications, approximately two weeks apart ,done in mid to late July.
In some instances, the best manner to treat a tree is by injecting chemicals directly into the tree’s sap flow. These types of treatments are ideal for internal issues and insects such as Borers and iron deficiencies.
We do smaller trim and shape projects.
