The proper plant health care plan includes:

  • Preventive spraying
  • Systemic injections into the bark
  • Cultural controls such as adding nutrients and winter watering

Insect and Disease Control Options

The most effective method to prevent aphids and other defoliating insects is to spray the tree with a pesticide or fungicide as a contact preventive agent.

Injections are a good option if you have environmental concerns about pesticide spraying or for insects that have several generations that attack the target tree each year.  Systemic injections have almost no chance of entering the ground water supply.

Application of fertilizer is sometimes a good solution to promote the vigor of the tree allowing it to better fight off insects & diseases as well.  Adding water and nutrients to the soil will bolster the tree’s natural defense system.

Common Tree Insects and Diseases

Here is a list of the most common insects found in Parker area trees:

  • Mountain Pine Beetle (MPB)
  • Ips Bark Beetle – target pine & spruce trees
  • Spider Mites
  • Aphids
  • Ash Borer – active in early spring
  • Pine Zimmerman Moth

And here are the tree diseases we most frequently treat & prevent:

  • Cytospora
  • Elm & Dutch Elm Disease – a fungal infection spread by park beetles
  • Fire Blight – named for its appearance of leaves looking fire scorched, this contagious bacteria affects primarily crabapple, apple & pear trees
  • Pine wilt

Insect & Disease Control Timing

In almost every plant health care situation, the timing of application is the important factor in whether it works fully.  For example, dormant oils are injected in the tree before it comes out of its winter hibernation state.

Most insect infestations occur should be done at a particular time every year.  Mountain Pine Beetles are active in July and August especially. Ash Borer for clear winged ash borer and red headed ash borer starts in Late April-May, and the Pine Zimmerman Moth is best prevented in September.
