Let the experts at Greenleaf keep unwanted pests from damaging your trees.
Aphids Spraying Insect Control
Commonly effect deciduous trees (Aspen, Willow, Maple, etc.) and bushes in our area. Aphids feed by sucking sap from the leaves of plants and can cause several kinds of injuries. In high numbers there can be a decline in plant vigor. Aphids also excrete large amounts of sticky droppings, which may become a significant nuisance and allows for growth of associated sooty molds. Aphids may cause leaf curling and discoloration.
We recommend multiple solutions depending on severity. Systemic Soil Injections have proven to be most affective. Topical spray applications also may be required in some cases. Treatment is done during spring and summer.
Tip Weevil Spraying Insect Control
Commonly effects blue Spruce and Pines in our area. These insects attack the main leader or new growth in the top of the tree by laying eggs. These eggs become larva that feed on the trees new growth. The larva then matures to adults and emerges in the summer. They then hibernate at the base of the tree through winter and the cycle continues.
We recommend spraying Spruce and Pine trees in the spring and fall to prevent Tip Weevil damage.
Mites Spraying Insect Control
This pest can affect deciduous (Aspen, Willow, etc.) and conifers (Spruce, Pine, etc.) Mites are small, spider-like creatures that can cause a great deal of damage to trees and shrubs. They are most active in hot, dry weather and prefer to feed on the undersides of leaves. Mites can quickly strip a tree or shrub of its foliage, causing it to yellow or gray with premature leaf drop/needle drop.
In addition to the aesthetic damage they cause, mites can also decrease the vigor of plants, making them more susceptible to disease and stress. Mites must be treated with Miticide while active and it is most effective during the summer.
Scale Spraying Insect Control
Scale can be found in Aspens and in mature conifers (Spruce, Pine, etc.) Scale attacks the trunks and larger limbs of both young and old trees. Dieback of the branches, limbs, needles and sometimes the entire tree can die where the infestation are not controlled. The scale insects suck sap from the phloem cells, depriving the tree of food manufactured in the leaves and needles.
Treatments vary from soil injections using systemic to topical sprays depending on the crawling stages.
Scale is treated mainly during spring and summer.
Borer Spraying Insect Control
Borers make holes in the truck off your trees. They can be in Aspen trees (deciduous) and Spruce trees (conifers). The holes are generally the size of a strong lead pencil and they girdle or kill the tree by eating a tunnel under the bark.
You can usually tell if a tree is infested with borers by the presence of small holes in the trunk or branches. If you suspect that your tree is infested, you should contact the professionals at Greenleaf for a diagnosis. Borer in spruce and pines can be controlled with our regular preventive maintenance programs.
Beetle Spraying Insect Control
Mountain Pine Beetles / Spruce Beetle / lps Beetles
The western forest is now infested with beetles that are devouring native trees. (Lodge pole, Scotch and Douglas fir) These insects feed on a tree for one year or two before killing the entire forest.
Mountain pine beetle may decimate huge numbers of trees each year during assaults. Trees that are not growing vigorously due to age, crowding, poor growing circumstances, drought, fire, or mechanical damage are the most vulnerable.
