Insect & Disease Control
Insect & Disease Control
Prevention of harmful agents, such as insects and diseases, occurring on trees and shrubs involves carefully planned steps such as proper monitoring, plant care, and select treatments. When dealing with insects and diseases, taking action at the right time is what makes huge differences between a lush and healthy green outdoor space and one that is infested by issues all season long.
Focusing on the prevention of these problems rather than just reacting to the already present effects as they happen, saves you money, time, and effort on pesticide applications and disease treatments. Prevention, when done right, is key to a more attractive and safe environment.
Integrated Pest Management (IPM)
Are bugs already invading the trees and soft shrubs in your green spaces? If insects are attacking your precious flowers, burning trees & bushes, and causing other harmful effects these can have lasting devastating effects to the overall health of your plants if not treated immediately. Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an effective approach to pest management that combines the use of biological, cultural, and chemical applications.
IPM programs are regarded as environmentally sensitive and use current comprehensive information on the life cycles of insects and how they interact with the environment. The use of this information, combined with the already available pest control methods, is used to manage the damage caused by infestations through the most economical means possible. It also keeps the number of hazards to people, property, and the environment to a minimum.
The most essential element in an effective disease and insect control treatment is timing. This serves as an important aspect of any IPM strategy. In addition, treatments must be correctly applied to the exact part of the plant. For example, the applicator will target tree leaves to control a foliar disease while spraying tree trunks will control a tree borer.
Ultimately, this streamlined economical approach towards pest management provides more successful results with minimal need for dangerous chemicals. The process is also environmentally friendly and safe for people and pets.
