All of our spray treatments contain a tacking agent to keep the product on the foliage longer and to withstand rainfall. There are six different treatments that can be applied each season. The general program consists of fertilizer, insect and disease control.
Summer Insect, Disease and Mite Control
Late Summer Insect, Disease and Mite Control
Gypsy Moth Spraying
These small medicine caps are also used for fertilization, and insect & disease control. This type of treatment is a direct injection into the tree trunk, which acts quicker. This method of treatment is preferred as an environmentally friendly option to spraying pesticides into the air. If the applications are for trees only (not shrubs), and/or if the tree has a critical problem that needs aggressive treatment. It is also one of two main treatment options for gypsy moth and Emerald Ash Bore control.
We also can add Merit to our spring or fall deep root fertilizer mix or separately. Merit injected (also referred to as soil drench) into the root zone of trees and shrubs is a systemic pesticide which is a popular treatment in preventing many pest problems, including Emerald Ash Bore.
Mauget also offers a product that works well in preventing Apple Scab. This product must be injected in early spring before bud break. This is a one time application as an alternative to spraying multiple times throughout the season.
Done one time in October and lasts for 6 months.
The larvae of the EAB feed inside the tree destroying the tree's vascular system. A large, healthy Ash tree may be killed by the EAB in 2-3 years. It is unlikely that a tree may be saved once its canopy is 25% dead. Some of the signs indicating that an ash tree might be infested include:
Spring and/or Fall Deep Root Fertilization
