Cleveland, Ohio Winter Tree Pests You Should Know About!

During cold winters, trees often find themselves hosts to many creatures, including unwanted pests. These pests can cause serious damage to your trees, especially if they are not noticed until spring or summer. By working with a Waite Hill tree company like Vancuren Tree Service, you can take the best possible care of your trees, even if winter pests call it home.

Spider mites, codling moth grubs, and aphids are common winter pests. Winter time is a great time to treat your trees for these bugs because they nest in the colder months to prepare for the springtime. Often, you may not notice the damage they have caused until the warmer months, when they are more difficult to control.

One preventative step you can take to avoid this is by weeding and pruning in the fall. This makes it easier to spot nesting insects and other infestations before they become problematic. Another thing you can do is spray your trees with a winter wash or a dormant oil. These are oil-based solutions that do not harm the tree, children, or animals. It suffocates pests and their eggs without harming the beneficial insects. It should cover the entire surface of the trees and branches. You could also use glue bonds to protect your tree. These keep insects from crawling up the trees to nest. Fruit grease serves the same purpose. You could also call a specialist to receive the best care possible.

Using these preventative methods, along with the assistance of a tree care service can ensure that your tree receives the best care possible. Working with a tree service company in Waite Hill like Vancuren Tree Service will make sure that your trees are healthy and any damage done to them is repaired.
