Tree & Shrub Care – Soil Injection



Soil Injection


What was done:

 Today we applied: 

Today’s Systemic Soil Injection application consisted of a soil applied systemic insecticide, which was injected directly into the root zone of your plants.  The Systemic Soil Injection is a very effective treatment method for the season-long control of certain insect pests.

Please note:  If this application was done as a Spotted Lantern Fly control measure, please remember that the pests must FEED on the tree in order to be controlled.  Simply landing on the tree does not expose the pest to the insecticide.

Today’s application works best when the soil is damp.  If the soil is not damp, lightly irrigating each plant is recommended.  The application will still be effective if the soil is not damp, but the product may take longer to be absorbed and translocated through the target plant.  It is also fine to use the treated area immediately after the application is completed.

 Additional items of interest:

One other item of importance for landscape plants is minimizing weed competition for nutrients and moisture. Our Weed Control in Beds program can greatly reduce the number of these weeds and save you time and effort from hand pulling. We’ll make monthly visits to maintain control of this unwanted vegetation.

Remember Green Giant offers free inspection of all areas covered in your program. Should a problem arise don’t hesitate to call so we can address your concern as quickly as possible. We will keep working until you are completely satisfied.


All of our programs are based on the principles of  Integrated Pest Management (IPM) which is an environmentally friendly and effective approach to controlling damaging insects, diseases and invasive plants. For more information about IPM click here.
