Furthermore, a spray treatment is only as effective as that plant’s ability to recover from an ailment after said treatment.  The commitment to sound arboriculture is what defines Plant Healthcare Solution’s spray programs.  Our dedication to regular inspection of your property means spraying less often and with the least possible need of reapplication. When treatments are recommended it is only because the threshold for infection and infestation has been met.  Treatments are applied at the correct time of year based on strict monitoring of growing degree days.  Spraying occurs when weather permits optimal control.  Spray programs where multiple applications are required are administered at the most efficient interval, minding budget and efficacy.  Treatment materials are specifically chosen based on a multitude of variables including host, pathogen/pest, resistance potential, site characteristics, client preference & beneficial insect presence.  Plant Healthcare Solutions’ strict adherence to pesticide regulations ensures a consistent application every time.  Our equipment provides a reliable and safe application by design and is maintained meticulously.  Most importantly the Plant Healthcare Solution approach is as efficient as possible by being affordable. When it comes to applying insect controls, Plant Health Care Solutions utilizes a wide range of products for targeted control. We’re also dedicated to ensuring that the materials we use to treat your property are the safest, most effective controls available in the industry. You can always request a complimentary consultation to discover if there are insect or disease problems on your landscape. If you’ve noticed what looks like an insect problem on your own, the damage that’s been caused is a big help in determining the culprit – even if the pest is nowhere in sight.
Nearly all of the controls we use are either recognized as “reduced risk” by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), or are safe enough that they have been exempted from EPA regulations altogether.

Insects harmful to plants are typically divided into three categories according to their method of feeding: chewing, sucking and boring.

Chewing Insects
Chewing insects come in many shapes and sizes (from beetles to caterpillars). What they have in common is a taste for the leaves, flowers, buds, or twigs of trees and shrubs. Depending on the pest, chewing insect damage may include leaf skeletonizing, leaf mining, leaf notching, and more. Not only is leaf damage and defoliation unattractive, it’s also harmful to overall plant health. Leaves are a primary source of energy for plants, and defoliation can lead to full scale decline if an insect problem is left untreated.

Sucking Insects
Sucking insects, like aphids and leafhoppers, have long beak-like mouths that they insert into leaves, twigs, and other supple plant parts to feed on the plant’s juices. Visible symptoms of sucking insects can include wilting or curled leaves, canopy dieback, reduced growth, and the presence of galls on leaves. A number of sucking insects also produce a sticky substance known as honeydew that gathers unattractive and harmful sooty mold.

Boring Insects
Boring, or tunneling, insects cause damage by boring into the trunks, stem, roots, or twigs of trees and shrubs. They are particularly dangerous to trees because damage to the trunk is essentially irreparable. The galleries formed by boring insects interfere with a tree’s vascular system, typically cutting off the flow of nutrients to areas above the infestation. Borers are known as secondary invaders, usually only thriving in already stressed trees and shrubs. There are certainly controls available to treat borers, but the key to fighting them off is maintaining overall plant health.

Foliar treatments for trees can ameliorate a host of issues and are an essential component of integrated pest management.  Concerns with pest and disease can sometimes be resolved with as little as one application.  Where multiple spray treatments are required, Plant Healthcare Solutions demonstrates its commitment to efficiency by treating only the plants and portion of plants that will directly benefit and by administering the program with as few reapplications as required.
