Spraying Only Successful with the Right Strategy
Another important factor is that while timing is important, the strategy of application also makes a difference. How diluted a spray will be, how much is used, and what method of application is required are questions your applicator should be able to answer. Our crews are trained to comply with both recommended dosages based on your tree and its condition, and to avoid potential toxic cross-uses, such as multiple types of pesticide combined with the hope one will work.
Finally, make sure the company applying any chemicals on your property explain fully how the product is supposed to work, what kinds of application methods they plan to use, and what longer term impacts you may expect. In some cases, it’s best to move outdoor furniture, children’s play areas, or pet zones for a period after chemical application. Understand what is likely to happen to the tree because of the spray, and what side effects you might notice after treatment.
Check with Your Certified Arborist before Spraying Trees
Keep in mind that there is no such thing as preventative care when it comes to spraying. If a Kalamazoo tree company comes to your door and says they can spray your trees to help you avoid a future problem, get a second opinion before agreeing. If applied incorrectly, these chemicals can result in damage to surrounding vegetation and health risks to your family and the environment. You only want to leave this in the hands of a professional.
