INSECT PREVENTATIVE PROGRAMS

 

If your are interested in finding out how these programs could benefit your trees contact us at FOREST@COATESTREE.COM

 

*  DORMANT OIL PROGRAM:  Dormant trees are treated with highly refined paraffinic oil that smothers insects and eggs, which have over-wintered on the tree.  This program is done during the winter months (January to April) before trees have leafed out.

*  WINTER SOIL INJECTION PROGRAM:  A low toxicity systemic insecticide is injected into the soil around the tree.  As the temperatures begin to rise and the tree begins to grow, the insecticide is drawn up in the sap, so when insects attack the tree they are destroyed.
