Are These Eating Through Your Leaves?

They ate and they ate and they ate; yet they were still hungry! This time of year aphids, spider mites and caterpillars are present. You may find these pesky pests on your trees and shrubs. These pests are most known for eating through plant leaves, destroying the leaves making the appearance unfavorable. Aphids will cause the leaves on the tree to curl and be distorted. Have you ever wondered why your patio furniture, cars, or sidewalks are covered with a sticky substance? It is the secretion aphids’ leave behind. Disgusting!

Now is the time to jump on board with tree & shrub insect control. With Swingle’s two-step approach we can provide the ultimate plant protection with minimal environmental impact. We start by treating “primary” tree and shrubs that are likely to be damaged by these pests. We offer two application methods including foliar and soil injection to protect from damage.

We continue to monitor all trees and shrubs that have been treated and inspect remaining trees or shrubs for aphids, spider mites, and caterpillars. If Swingle finds additional infestation, others will be treated right away at NO additional cost. In total it is recommended to have applications completed three to four times per year to ensure protection during the infestation period. These pests are annoying and can cause serious damage. Don’t let them ruin your landscape! Learn More about other types of tree pest.
