Insect & Disease Control
Mr. Amoto Lawn & Tree uses an integrated approach to managing insects and diseases that begins with maintaining plant health using sound cultural practices including pruning and creating optimal soil conditions for plant growth. Periodic inspections are essential to detect pest infestations before they reach damaging levels. If treatment thresholds are met and treatment is needed, our ISA Certified arborists can administer a treatment plan that is effective yet safe for your family and the environment.
Hundreds of insect species damage leaves, stems, and branches; roots; and flowers and fruit of landscape plants. But not all insects on trees and shrubs are damaging. Some are beneficial and may help pollinate flowers or could be predators or parasites on insects that damage plants. Our arborists are trained to correctly identify these beneficial insects and mites and can devise effective management programs that protect landscape plants from serious damage while conserving beneficial organisms.
Diseases are abnormalities in trees and shrubs caused by microorganisms such as fungi and bacteria and by environmental stress such as drought, temperature extremes, and air pollution. Diseases are often difficult to diagnosis as different causal agents can produce similar symptoms. Accurate diagnosis is essential to developing effective treatment programs. Mr. Amoto Lawn & Tree Service is the area leader in plant health care and diagnostics and our staf of Certified Arborist's & Plant Health Care Technicians will ensure accurate identification and treatment of plant problems.
