Control Pests Now While Your Plants Are Dormant
Pests like aphids, scale, and mites can wreak havoc on our trees if left untreated for too long.
An effective way to manage pests on your property and protect your trees is to catch them while they’re sleeping. Applying horticultural oil while pests are dormant before they emerge in spring is an effective way of preventing pests from getting out of control. These oils, when mixed with water, kill pests and their eggs by cutting off their supply of oxygen. Since these pests cannot develop a resistance to the oil, horticultural oil is a popular and safe method of pest control.
Have A Professional Apply Horticultural Oil
Before applying horticultural oil to your trees, consult with an ISA Certified Arborist. If applied incorrectly or to sensitive plants, applications may cause injury. A professional will inspect your trees and determine if, and when, horticultural oil should be applied as a management tool. Then, they will safely apply the oil accordingly.
