There is an enormous amount of scales and mites species in Middle Tennessee, which makes it a bit too long to list them all. Instead, we want to focus on how to prevent and manage them to avoid an outbreak so your trees and shrubs can grow healthy and have your property looking beautiful.
Maintaining your yard clean and trimmed is the perfect way to not allow pests from inhabiting trees and shrubs.
Take a walk around your property and do a detailed inspection of the trees and shrubs to determine if there is a pest problem. The “walk around” is a great way to identify if your plants are suffering from a disease caused by scales or mites.
It is easy to leave depression areas around trees and shrubs unattended, allowing for leaves and water to collect in a pool. This common mistake gives room for larvae, pathogens, and bacteria to grow in, which in turn, is where scales and mites come to feed and reproduce. To prevent an infestation, make sure this build-up of leaves and water does not happen.
A powerful way to alleviate a scales and mite infestation in your landscaping is by using pesticides and chemicals that prevent their reproduction. SecureLawn is Middle Tennessee’s leading expert in preventing and removal of pest infestations.
