Insect and Disease Control
Bowman’s Pro Turf, Co.’s Ornamental Tree and Shrub Program consists of scheduled treatments that are designed for year-long plant health and vigor. Pest control agents are used as needed to minimize insect and disease problems. Insect and disease controls often begin while the pant is still dormant in the spring, and may continue until fall.
Common insect treatments that we preform include:
- Emerald Ash Borer
- Tent Caterpillars
- Bag Worms
Fall is the best time to greatly increase root growth activity. The rapidly expanding roots can absorb nutrients in greater quantities during the fall, and nutrients are available to fuel the initial spring flush of growth.
