Why Choose Tree Truck Injections for Pest Control?
Quick & Effective
Since the pest control formula is injected directly into the tree’s trunk, the formula can spread quickly throughout the tree’s vascular system to reach its branches and leaves.
Tree trunk injections have a low environmental impact compared to other pesticide application methods. Injection is also safer for your family and pets since the pest control formula is not sprayed into the air but instead injected into the trunk of the tree.
Protect Against Northern Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, DC’s Most Common Pests
In this region, the most common pests that harm trees include gypsy moths, aphids, and elm leaf beetles. These insects can be detrimental to your tree’s health if allowed to access the tree.
While these pests do not kill trees directly, gypsy moths do severely defoliate or strip the leaves from the tree. This heavy defoliation causes stress to the tree, leaving it more likely to contract a disease or attract further pest infestation. The stress can also lead to the eventual death of the tree.
Aphids are insects that can cause a variety of issues for your trees. These insects can turn the tree’s leaves yellow and leave behind a sticky sap called “honeydew” that attracts mold. While these pests won’t necessarily kill your tree, they will cause unsightly damage, ruining your tree’s beauty along with its health.
Elm leaf beetles
Similar to gypsy months, elm leaf beetles won’t directly kill a tree; rather, they will defoliate the tree. This defoliation causes the leaves to turn brown and fall off, sometimes as early as mid-summer. This weakens the tree severely, leaving it vulnerable to disease and other attacks.
