Tree & Shrub Care – Japanese Beetle Control

Japanese Beetle Control

 

TODAY’S VISIT

 

What was done: Japanese Beetle Control (Popillia japonica)

Today we applied insecticide to the trees and shrubs.  Japanese beetles feed on a wide variety of plants and crops as larvae or grubs. As adults, they will feed on and cause a multitude of damage to a variety of ornamental trees, shrubs, plants and grasses. Damage can be seen as skeletonizing of the leaf surface.

Beetles are most active on warm, sunny days.

This application usually dries within 1 hour and any precipitation after this time will not adversely impact the effectiveness of the treatment.

 

FYI: You can help prevent some of these disease problems by proper pruning to allow good air circulation, good sanitation practices of removing fallen leaves or twigs on which diseases can over-winter, and by installing plants in their proper environment and not subjecting them to potential problems. There will always be some feeding on foliage by some pests. Our treatments are designed to decrease pest populations so there is little noticeable damage to your plantings. Check with us about our pruning services, which we offer during the dormant season.

 

PLEASE KEEP PEOPLE AND PETS AWAY FROM THE TREATED PLANTS

UNTIL THE APPLICATION IS DRY.
