Tree & Shrub Care Services by Termite Lawn and Pest, Inc of Orlando
Our shrub care services cover fertilizing and nutrients, damaging insect control and disease control. The most common plant pests we deal with are Scales, Aphids, Chilli Thrips, Caterpillars, Lace Bugs and Spider Mites. As with all plant care, prevention is the best practice for avoiding insect damage. Fungus and Disease control we treat for are Pythium Root Rot, Cercospora Leaf Spot, Entomosporium Leaf Spot, Powdery Mildew and more.
Maintaining a healthy pest free landscape, also helps prevent insects from entering the house. Insects like ants are attracted to sooty mold or honey dew. Sooty mold or honey dew is a result of waste created by insects. Ants are highly attracted to this and it is a popular food source. Keeping you plants free of insects will help your indoor pest control efforts.
Customized Shrub Care & Pest Control Services
Just as with our Lawn Care program, our Shrub Care program is also customized for your properties needs. Our technicians can custom blend each shrub treatment. Not all fertilizers are the same. There are cheap low quality fertilizers and there are great high quality fertilizers. The quality and amount of the ingredients help to determine how good a fertilizer is. Some fertilizers do absolutely nothing for flowers. While other plant fertilizers promote blooms and dramatically increase flower production and quality for a plant. Termite Lawn and Pest, Inc uses only the best plant fertilizers. You won’t find us using the cheap stuff, because the cheap stuff does not produce results.
The same applies to the insecticides and fungicides that we use. When it comes to controlling insects, we use systemic products when we can. The disadvantage of systemic products is that they are more expensive. But that advantages are pretty good. They last longer. They have less of an impact on the environment and health. And they rarely harm beneficial insects, which means we’re helping our ecosystem. Public and Environmental Health is very important to all of us here at Termite Lawn and Pest.
Palm and Tree Care
We didn’t forget about your Palms and Trees. We keep those healthy too. We use traditional methods as well as direct injection methods to deliver nutrients, insecticides and fungicides to your Palms and Trees.
Eliminate Garden Bugs and Garden Pests in Central Florida
If you’re one of those homeowners that feels gardening or working in your landscape offers a relaxing way to enjoy the outdoors with a constructive hobby that rewards you with beautiful flowers, you probably have also experienced the frustration that comes with stunted, damaged plants. Garden bugs and garden pests can quickly turn this hobby into a frustrating exercise in futility.
A swarm of pests can quickly undo weeks of careful planting, watering and fertilizing, leaving you with nothing more than a sore back and sunburn. Harmful shrub pests include a variety of insects and rodents that may vary by season and the variety of plants grown.
Outdoor Pest Control Built on Prevention
As with virtually all types of outdoor pest control, the easiest way to support a healthy landscape is by preventing these garden bugs and pests in the first place.
To support your garden and landscapes health and stop attracting pests in the first place, the team at Termite Lawn and Pest recommends the following steps:
- Support healthy soil with compost or fertilizers
- Discard weak or damaged plants that may be infected or attract pests
- Clear the landscape area of places that may become a pest habitat, like piles of debris
- Do not over water plants and allow to dry to minimize fungal development and insect attraction
- Disinfect pruning tools that have been used on infected plants to avoid spreading disease
