Pest Management - research the pest

Tip #3 on pest management. Once you figure out what pest you have on hand, you must research what it does, does not do, what it likes, does not like, etc.  What method does it use to get to the tree or plant? The more you understand it, the better you can fight it. Where does it hang out? What does it eat? When is it the most vulnerable? Is it an invasive species?  Are there any natural predators?  This type of info will help you with the next two steps, steps 4 and 5.

Of course, you can always count on a certified arborist to brief you on the pests in your yard.  They will have many of the answers that you are looking for.  The arborists at Trees R Us, Inc. can help you with all these questions and create a plan to remove the bugs from your property before the bugs remove your tree(s)!  For the previous steps, click here.
