Diagnosing Aphids

Diagnosis is rapid for a certified arborist who will inspect infected leaves, infested trees, and the habitat grounds. As they feed, aphids emit a sticky substance called honeydew that creates a black moldy residue on the underside of leaves. Foliage will curl, droop, brown and die when aphids have extracted nutrients from the leaves. The structural integrity of the tree will be examined because aphids target trees that have suffered wounds or have weakened health. The diagnosis report will be presented with the immediate treatment necessary, and the arbor care professional will personalize the on-going care and maintenance program to prevent further aphid infestation.

Treatment Of Aphids

Insecticide treatments are successful in eliminating aphids and the arborist who treats sick trees will administer applications and also present organic options that protect desired natural predators such as ladybugs. A one year warranty on any treatment will be included. All severely infested trees or plants must be promptly removed and destroyed by the tree service. Regularly scheduled deep root fertilization and systemic deep root feeding protect the tree's root structure and maintain its health. Aphids can be eliminated and plants saved if action is taken quickly and the residential grounds are maintained by the best arborist in Fort Worth!
