Citrus Tree Spraying

 

Citrus trees include grapefruit, oranges, lemons, and limes which depending on the species grow in U.S. These fruit trees can come under attack from damaging insects and diseases, which can affect the fruit production of your citrus trees. To kill, treat or prevent problems, oil sprays and organic pesticides are one option.

Insects

Leafrollers, aphids, mealybugs, thrips, whiteflies, cutworms and scale insects are some of the insects that infest citrus trees. These insects will leave the citrus leaves wilted, curled, discolored and distorted. The damaged leaves may fall from the citrus tree prematurely. Aphids, mealybugs, thrips, whiteflies and scale insects feed on the juices inside the leaves which sucks the liquid out of the plant. Leafrollers eat leaves and mature fruit and roll leaves up, securing them with a silky thread.

Diseases

Horticultural oils protect the citrus plant from various fungal diseases, such as powdery mildew, rusts, black spot and scab. These products work by preventing the fungal spores from adhering to the plant and disrupting the fungal pathogen’s cell wall and prevents it from attaching itself to the citrus tree. Controlling insects and keeping fungal diseases under control helps your Citrus Trees stay health and producing.

Landscape Pest Control will help rid your Property of

  • Aphids

Adults of these tiny pests often lack wings. Aphids can produce copious amounts of sticky honeydew, which can lead to the growth of black sooty mold.

  • Whitefly & Psyllids

Psyllids and white flies suck plant sap and excrete sticky honeydew. As adults, psyllids resemble miniature cicadas; white flies look like tiny flies with whitish wings.

  • Thrips

Thrips are tiny, slender insects, with fringed wings and piercing mouth parts. They often leave tiny black dots of waste on leaves.

  • Scales

Scales are immobile, wingless, and lack a separate head or other recognizable body parts, so many people don’t recognize them as insects.

  • Mealybugs

Mealybugs often have waxy filaments radiating from their bodies. They are wingless, move slowly, and congregate in groups covered with whitish mealy or cottony wax.

  • Snails & Slugs

You might not observe these pests at first, because they feed at night and hide during the day. Go out at night or in the early morning to view them in action. Other pests can cause holes in leaves, flowers, and fruit. Look for the shiny, slimy trails slugs and snails leave behind.

  • Ticks

Ticks can infest people or pets and may carry disease. Adult ticks seek their hosts from late fall to spring, but are most active during winter

  • Mites

Mites are tiny and hard to see without a magnifying glass. They may damage fruit trees, vines, berries, vegetables, or ornamental plants.

Ant Control

Antex Exterminating Ant Control

Ants are a very tricky pest control problem.  Most general pest control products will list ants on their label, but that does not mean they are effective against ants. Just because a product will kill an ant does not mean it will control an ant infestation. In fact, some products may make your problem worse, due to the pesticide’s formulation ants can detect the product and avoid it.  So over the counter Ant Control sprays can cause the ant colony to feel threatened Once threatened they can bud out and make more colonies!

Gophers are prolific diggers and can be quite a problem for Home and Property Owners, Businesses, Golf Courses, Parks, HOA’s, Property Managers, and Agricultural Sites. Gopher infestation is usually noticed when you see their  mounds. They are very much like an Horseshoe shaped Mound. The problem above ground is bad enough but it’s what you cant see, below ground level that you should be worried about!.

This chemical/pesticide free approach to Gopher Control delivers a positive catch so you know the problem animal has been removed. All removal is below ground and is pet and family-safe.
