Plant Health Care

Common plant health care problems such as fire blight, scales, fungi, mildew, and invasive beetles can quickly wreak havoc on an otherwise healthy property. Even worse, many of these problems are easily preventible with a regular treatment schedule.

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices. IPM programs use current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment. This information, in combination with available pest treatment methods, is used to manage pest damage by the most economical means, and with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment.
