Dormant Oil Spray - Tick and Turf's dormant oil spray application services are a very effective method of preventing many types of insects and pests from invading your landscape and causing disease and damage issues. Horticultural oil is most efficient when applied in the early spring season and a potent solution to control pets that "winter over" on the trees, shrubs, and plants of your landscape. Tick and Turf's Dormant oil application is non-toxic and environmentally safe. Hiring us to implement a thorough dormant oil application during the early spring season can offer a level of protection for your trees and shrubs and ensure that they remain healthy, which will reduce the requirement for additional pesticides later in the season.

 

Foliar Sprays - In conjunction with our Dormant Oil Spray applications, Tick and Turf also uses a Foliar Spray that works to defend your trees and shrubs from disease spreading insects that can cause great harm. The insecticides, Sevin and Tempo, are used to control many insects infesting trees, including aphids and caterpillars. Tick and Turf's foliar spray services are an effective way to invigorate your trees and plants and assist in providing a quick and effective remedy for any stress or disease they may be experiencing.

Birch Leaf Miner - The birch leaf miner is a tiny white worm, which inhabits itself in the birch leaf of a tree and makes the leaf wither away and eventually fall in the late spring and early summer season. They are among the most recurrent insects causing damage to landscape trees and shrubs in the Connecticut region. To protect your landscape from the dangerous infestation of the birch leaf miner, Tick and Turf offers root injections of Merit in the early spring season. Once applied to the root system of your tree, Merit is channeled through your tree and into the leaf tissue.

 

Spring Fertilizing - The spring season is an opportune time to provide fertilization for your turf. It is important to build a solid foundation during this time of the year so that your lawn will remain vibrant through the hot and dry summer season.

Your garden plants can also benefit from the addition of nutrients to the soil as they begin their annual growth season. Light fertilizing can promote healthy growth and increase flower and berry production.

However, if you have a newer tree or a tree that is diseased, it can greatly benefit from deep root feedings through soil injections of fertilizer. Tick Turf will assess the health of your tree and apply the necessary levels of fertilizer, which will allow it to fight off disease caused by pests and allow your tree to sustain a healthy structure.
