Eliminating Aphids: Your Ultimate Guide to Aphid Prevention
In this engaging and educational video, we delve into the issue of aphid infestation on common trees like oaks, pecans, and crape myrtles. Watch as our ISA Certified Arborists, Corey and Wes, share insights on effective methods of aphid control, while also preserving the environment and non-target species.
The video kicks off by identifying the problem and discussing why aphids are considered pests. Corey then elaborates on the different techniques of controlling aphid populations depending on the size and type of tree. For small to medium trees, physically washing off the aphids can be a temporary solution, but for larger trees like oaks or pecans, the task is more daunting and might require more sophisticated treatments.
Corey dives deep into the careful use of systemic insecticides that can specifically target sap-feeding insects without negatively impacting beneficial insects. The discussion illuminates the drawbacks of using broad-spectrum insecticide sprays and how these systemics are a more eco-friendly solution.
Later in the video, Corey provides valuable information on identifying the signs of an aphid infestation. He emphasizes the presence of honeydew, a sticky substance that aphids leave behind. Other tell-tale signs include leaf curling and discoloration due to the sap-sucking nature of these pests.
The conversation then transitions into the consequences of an aphid infestation on the overall health and vigor of a tree. While aphids may not kill a tree, the stress they cause can lead to its eventual decline. Not only that, the presence of honeydew and sooty mold can cause unsightly marks and discoloration on your trees and outdoor furniture.
This video is an excellent resource for anyone who wants to keep their trees healthy and vibrant. So join us, and gain an edge in the battle against aphids.
