Insect And Disease Control Options

The Most Effective Method In Many Cases Is Spraying The Tree With Pesticide Or Fungicide As A Contact Prevention Or Curative Agent. Avoiding Pest And Disease Help Prevent Your Tree From Experiencing Chronic Stress. Also, The Right Amount Of Water Helps.

Some Insect And Fungus Problems Occur Deep Within The Cambium Layers (The Bark Of The Tree) And Injections Are The Best Option. Injections Are Also A Good Option If You Have Environmental Concerns About Pesticide Spraying. Injections Are Handy As There Is Little Chance Of It Entering The Ground Water Supply

Application Of Fertilizer Or Water Is Sometimes A Good Indirect Solution To Prevent Or Control Insects & Diseases. Adding More Nutrients To The Soil Will Bolster The Tree’s Natural Defense System. This Could Result In A Healthier Tree Able To Fight Off Natural De-Foliating Or Leaf-Chewing, Insects.
