IT’S TIME TO THINK ABOUT APHID CONTROL

IT’S TIME TO THINK ABOUT APHID CONTROL

Roses





 





If you have roses, chances are you have aphids. As soon as leafs and buds appear on your rose bushes you will see aphids on them practically overnight. The best way to control aphids in Woodland or Davis is to have Woodland-Davis Termite & Pest Control, Inc. perform a deep root injection of the chemical Criterion. Along with Criterion we also add a liquid fertilizer to stimulate the uptake of the chemical as well as plant growth and overall health. The two other big aphid attractants in our area are crepe myrtle trees and hackberry trees. For these, we do a bark injection of the chemical Imicide that is taken up into the tree immediately and goes to work killing aphids, white flies, scale, and many other sucking insects. Neither of these chemicals harms ladybugs or neighboring plants.





The best time to do the deep root injection is mid-January through mid-February. The bark injections are done in late February. Both offer season long control and include free call back service if the aphids re-appear.
