Pests can cause serious damage to the health of your plant life. That is why we at Unlimited Landscaping Alpharetta have devised our tree and shrub program that consist of 7 applications of integrated pest management. So what is the integrated pest management? It is a program of reducing insect and plant disease problems through a series of checks to maintain a healthy landscape, vigilantly watching for potential problems and when detected, attending and eradicating these problems.
Below are the 7 rounds of the tree and shrub program:
Round 1- Early spring Preventative
Specific ornamental trees and shrubs are treated with Horticultural Oil and insecticide. This application coats the plants and smothers overwintering insect eggs.
Round 2-6 – Mid spring, Late spring, and late summer Insect and Disease Controls
Using Integrated Pest Management (IPM) guidelines, we treat targeted trees and shrubs for specific insects and diseases. These treatments are designed to minimize damage caused by the insects and diseases. This application also consist of a liquid slow release fertilizer to keep your plants feed.
Round 7 – Early winter Preventative
This is a second application of Horticultural Oil and insecticide designed to smother insects and their eggs before they enter the winter season.
