Application 1 is the important first step in plant health for the entire growing season – root zone fertilization. This fertilization treatment is applied to the feeder roots of the plants within the drip line of the trees or shrub.
Application 2 is designed to control insects as they emerge from overwintering, or hatching, as adults.
Application 3 controls insects and diseases during their most active period. Usually problematic at this time are Japanese Beetles, bagworms, mites, powdery mildew, and sooty mold.
Application 4 is the midsummer treatment which extends the control of insects and diseases.
Application 5 amends the soil of the beds to ensure that your plants are in their proper environment for health and vigor. This treatment may include lime, sulfur, iron, and micronutrients.
Application 6 is dormant or horticultural oil treatment, which is a biological control measure. It coats the surface of the plant, cutting off oxygen to the overwintering pest.
