Potential plant & pest problems for 2017:
TicksOur early spring treatment is essential to stop ticks before they lay eggs – each can lay 2,000-3,000. We can help identify tick-risky areas of your property by locating tick habitat or doing a “tick drag” and scheduling an organic treatment.READ MORE from Tick Encounter Research Center
Gypsy Moth Caterpillars2016 saw a large outbreak in the Northeast and research shows a continuing trend of population surge in ’17. Heavy rains knock back gypsy moth populations naturally, however NY has been experiencing drought-like conditions. Allow us to identify egg masses on vulnerable trees on your property and schedule an organic treatment.READ MORE from Joe ElkintonPh.D., Professor of Environmental Conservation
Drought StressIn early spring plants are tapping the soil for the energy they need to grow. Unfortunately, drought stress continues to be prevalent due to our changing climate. This leads to stunted growth and poor health, complicating pest and disease problems for several growing seasons. To fight drought stress in early spring, allow us to identify poor soil conditions and fertilize with our organic compost tea.READ MORE about drought’s effects on shrubs and trees
