Special Programs

  • V2: Canopy Spray Insecticide/Miticide Bifen + Abamectin

Boxwood Saver

Mites and Insects

Boxwoods are susceptible to psyllids, leaf miners, and mites. They can create unsightly areas and spread quickly. Prevention is the best defense.

Spider Mites and Rhizosphaera

All spruce trees are infested with rhizosphaera and spider mites. Both of these pests cause foliar die back and eventual death of the tree. We recommend all spruce trees be placed on this program.
