The health of your plant life can be seriously impacted by pests and disease. For that same reason, Unlimited Landscaping Marietta devised a tree and shrub program consisting of 7 applications of integrated pest management. This program is designed to reduce insect and plant disease problems and involves a battery of tests and vigilant watching, detecting and treating the problems wherever they may arise.
The 7 applications of integrated pest management are outlined below:
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.
