Tree Pests: How to Get Rid of Them!
Pests can be a huge problem for your tree, but luckily there are many ways to get rid of them! It’s best to prevent infestations so that you can enjoy the beauty of nature without having to worry about pesky bugs.
The most common tree pest is the aphid. They can be found on either side of a tree’s leaves and shoots, sucking out all of its juice! Aphids cause serious damage to your trees so it is important that you act quickly when they are first spotted.
To remove them, check around their base for their tell-tale eggs or fecal matter in order to find where they’re hiding! Once you’ve found one, use an insecticide spray like Malathion to get rid of them entirely!
Another common pest is scale insects. These tiny bugs can go unnoticed until too late because they only come out at night time! Like other pests, these guys suck up your tree’s precious sap with no signs of stopping anytime soon if left unchecked. You must act quickly before they cover you tree!
To get rid of these pests, use an oil-based spray to coat the tree. Try using a product like neem oil or mineral oils as it will not harm your trees but still kill those pesky insects and their scales!
Small bugs may be harmless to some people’s fruit trees, but if you don’t want them on yours then take precautions before they become a bigger problem. Keep in mind that while aphids are usually hard to see because of their size and location underneath leaves, these guys have wings so watch out for them crawling around after dark! To remove them, apply pyrethrin-based insecticides with contact killer properties at night when they’re most active. This pesticide kills everything it touches including roaches and bugs.
