Did you know that many types of conventional fertilizers can actually make tree pest problems worse? That’s because many types of fertilizer are incredibly nitrogen rich, and while nitrogen can help trees grow, it can also help common insects such as aphids and caterpillars multiply as well. More bugs mean bigger problems for your trees!
Tree Feeding as Tree Insect Control
How can you control bugs and help your trees get the nutrients they need to thrive? Choose organic seasonal foliar sprays from Organic Air Tree and Shrub Care instead of conventional fertilizers. Our nutrient sprays have the advantage of providing tree food and passive tree pest control at the same time.
Here’s how it works.
Unlike traditional tree insecticide sprays, our foliar nutrition sprays are not designed just to kill bugs. Our foliar feeding system provides balanced nutrition that boosts tree health without the excess nitrogen and surge growth that promote insect population explosions.
Our tree fertilizers include a natural blend of humates, fish, seaweed, and minerals designed to support each tree’s genetic potential. What they don’t include is heavy concentrations of nitrogen. This means your trees thrive without needing a whole lot of tree insect control in addition to the foliar spray. In this way, our foliar feeding sprays are both tree treatment for bugs and fertilizer.
When damaging insect population levels are present, however, we do offer several very effective organic tree insect control products. In most cases, these organic approaches are sufficient to resolve your trees’ pest problems. Infrequently, there are occasions when a conventional insecticide must be used for your trees, and Organic Air Tree and Shrub Care is also available to provide that service. In short, we are able to provide you with comprehensive tree pest control; conventional pesticides for trees simply aren’t our first line of attack like they are for most other tree health care companies.
Practical Tree Treatment for Bugs
So instead of using conventional fertilizers and then also needing toxic tree pesticides, seasonal foliar sprays from Organic Air Tree and Shrub Care offer a better approach. Unlike tree insecticide, our sprays are natural, non-toxic, and environmentally safe.
Why deal with the problem after the fact? At Organic Air Tree and Shrub Care, we believe in providing tree insect control that stops the problem before it starts!
