Step 1: Horticultural oil is applied to smother hibernating insects & over-wintering eggs deposited last year. This application dramatically reduces eggs from hatching & insect populations.
Step 2: We apply insecticides and fungicides to help prevent damage from insects like aphids and lace bugs. And fungal diseases like leaf spot.
Step 3: A timed insect and disease control treatments targeting mature and existing foliage. Supplemental fertilizer is applied, as needed.
Step 4: A timed insect and disease control treatments targeting mature and existing foliage. Supplemental fertilizer is applied, as needed.
Step 5: We inject fertilizer and nutrients into the feeding rootzone of your trees and shrubs. This step provides plants with a food reserve to utilize over the winter months and promotes strong new growth in the spring.
