How to Protect Trees with Dormant Oil

June 12, 2023

Watch our informative video on dormant oil treatment for tree pest control with host and ISA Certified Arborist Wes Rivers. In this episode, we delve into the fascinating world of horticulture oil and its significant role in suppressing overwintering insects. Wes explores the specific benefits of dormant oil and how it can effectively combat insect problems commonly encountered on trees in North Texas, such as aphids, scales, lace bugs, and caterpillars.

Dormant oil, a highly refined horticultural oil, is expertly mixed with water and an emulsifier to ensure a homogenous solution. Furthermore, the beauty of this product lies in its ability to asphyxiate insects, rather than relying on toxins to eliminate them. Consequently, dormant oil becomes the preferred organic treatment option for tree pest control.

When it comes to utilizing dormant oil, timing is crucial. Specifically, we strategically apply it during the dormant season when the trees are devoid of leaves. This approach allows us to mix the oil at higher rates without the risk of foliage burn, ultimately maximizing its control effectiveness. By exclusively targeting overwintering insects, we effectively prevent them from causing significant damage to the trees in the upcoming season.

Our experienced team fully understands the importance of using dormant oil for effective pest management. With just one well-timed application, we can help safeguard your trees against these persistent pests. Therefore, we invite you to join us in this video where we will share valuable insights, tips, and best practices for utilizing dormant oil to its fullest potential.
