Scale Insects Treatment in Fort Worth, TX.

Trees that exhibit premature defoliation, reduction of new shoots, dieback, and signs of a sick tree have frequently been infested with scale insects. These tree pests thrive in Texas summer heat and are extremely common in Fort Worth and the North Texas region. There are over eight thousand different species of these insects and certified arborists and tree care specialists are continuously encountering their destruction. Scale insects anchor themselves on to leaves and stems and pierce the foliage to extract the tree's nutritional sap. They do not move once attached; therefore, they are often overlooked. Early treatment is essential because they will eventually kill the tree. Do not delay in contacting an experienced tree company if your tree is exhibiting these symptoms or signs of a sick tree.

Diagnosing Scale Insects

Maintaining the health of your trees is of utmost importance because scale insects target trees that have become weak and vulnerable to tree diseases and insect infestations. Compacted soil and poor drainage restrict adequate root growth and inflict a tree with stress. Once scale insects have infested a tree they reproduce quickly and rapidly overtake your outdoor grounds. When you observe your tree is declining in health it is always best to enlist the services of a tree doctor and schedule a diagnostic evaluation. A certified arborist inspects the tree in question and explores the outdoor habitat. A detailed diagnosis report is then provided. The arborist who treats sick trees will administer the necessary treatment and a one year warranty will be included.

Treatment Of Scale Insects

Heavily-infested trees, dead branches, and all ground debris must be immediately removed and destroyed by a professional tree removal company. Regular lawn maintenance should always be performed by arbor care professionals to prevent accidental wounding by weed trimmers, mowers, and shovels. Fertilization by means of systemic deep root feeding and deep root fertilization boost the tree's immunity and make it much more resilient to disease and insect problems.
