Aphid Control in & Around Littleton, Golden, & Broomfield, CO
We offer both preventative and curative aphid control treatments.
Aphids are pesky insects that can damage and stunt the growth of your trees and shrubs. Our crew at Tree Keepers offers an aphid control program that will keep your trees and shrubs safe from harmful aphids. We provide this service to residential and commercial property owners in Littleton, Golden, Broomfield, and surrounding communities in Colorado. We offer a preventative treatment schedule that includes either soil injections or spray treatments, depending on what your trees and shrubs need. If you need curative aphid control treatments, we can provide those as well.
What is our preventative aphid control treatment schedule?
Our aphid control treatment schedule includes the application of preventative treatments every 30 days throughout the spring and summer. We apply our treatments during this time because while some kinds of aphids are active all year round, the majority of aphids are at their most active during the spring and summer months. This is due to the fact that the warm temperatures increase the rate at which aphids go through their life cycle.
Aphids can also get out of control during this time because they are becoming active before their native predators, primarily ladybugs, come out of hibernation. Therefore, it is important that we apply our aphid control treatments during the spring and summer so we can successfully prevent aphids from taking over your trees and shrubs.
We will use whatever treatment method is best for your trees or shrubs.
To protect your trees and shrubs from aphids, we use either soil injections (also known as deep root feedings) or spray treatments. Both of these methods are highly effective and systemic forms of pest control. Systemic pest control involves the application of water-soluble pesticides that can be absorbed by a plant and move around within its tissues. This method of pest control is more successful than traditional methods because it directly targets the pest and has a minimal impact on the environment. It also does not need to be applied as frequently as other pesticides.
When it comes to treating your trees and shrubs for aphids, our pest control experts will choose between soil injections and spray treatments according to the specific needs of your plants. While spray treatments tend to be faster acting, soil injections are a good option if there are other plants nearby that don't need unnecessary secondhand spray.
We provide curative aphid control treatments as well.
Our preventative aphid control treatments are designed to protect your trees and shrubs and prevent aphids from even having the opportunity to cause any damage in the first place. However, if you notice any aphid activity or see signs that an infestation is already taking place, we can help; we offer curative treatments as well as preventative ones, so you can rely on us to get rid of an existing aphid infestation, too.
We follow the guidelines from the Colorado Department of Agriculture when applying pesticides to minimize any impact on the environment.
