To preserve the trees on your property, fight fungus, and eliminate insect infestations, it's imperative to treat trees with dormant oils. Dormant oils treat scale and other tree diseases as well as killing off tree damaging insect infestations. The oils keep trees healthy as well as prevent the spread of fungus and insects to other plants and trees on the property. Alternative EarthCare shares three reasons to treat your trees with dormant oils.

  1. Dormant oils kill insects, eggs, and disease spores Dormant oils target aphids, scales, whiteflies, mites, and mealybugs, all of which can cause widespread devastation to property trees and plants. Insects, insect eggs, and disease spores can all be treated with professional applications of dormant oils. Other treatments may target each issue individually, making treating more difficult and expensive. Oils address these three major contributors of tree destruction at once with thorough treatment coverage.
  2. Dormant oils control the spread of tree disease What is far worse than discovering that the beautiful tree on your property is diseased, is discovering that because it went untreated, the disease has spread to other trees and plant life on the property. Tree disease can spread quickly by wind, by being carried by insects, or even on tools or human hands. By addressing fungus and disease early or by utilizing preventative measures, homeowners can stop the spread of tree disease that could lead to wide-spread damage to the landscape.
  3. Dormant oils have little residual effect  For those concerned with the after effects of property treatments, dormant oils are a safe alternative to other treatments. Dormant oils smother disease-spreading insects and penetrate insect egg shells, suffocating from within. Many other pesticides interact with biochemical processes that could harm other animals on the property.  Even benign insects are rarely impacted by dormant oils. Oils are designed for specific insect and fungus treatment, making them a safe treatment option with little residual effect.
