Insect & Disease Control
Spray every 10-14 days with three-way Insecticide • Fungicide • Miticide to prevent most insect & disease problems. To prevent & control various insect infestations apply a Tree & Shrub Systemic Insect Drench at the first of spring. During certain weather conditions, you may need to spray an additional fungicide. We recommend alternating between a Liquid Systemic Fungicide and a Broad Spectrum Landscape & Garden Fungicide until the problem is corrected, then continue using the basic program. Should any other problems arise, give us a call immediately!
Unwanted weeds will sap vital nutrients & moisture from the soil. When preparing a new flower bed, utilize a Turf & Ornamental Weed & Grass Stopper containing Barricade or Dimension to prevent listed weeds. This will prevent many grassy & broadleaf weeds from germinating. Control many listed grassy-type weeds that are already growing (such as Bermuda grass) with a Over-theTop Grass Killer. For all other weeds selectively apply a Super Concentrate non-selective Weed and Grass Killer as needed.
