Insect Control Services

Insect Control Services

Our unique climate and terrain leave our yards and gardens vulnerable to a specific mixture of pests resilient to our conditions. Schulhoff Tree & Lawn Care Inc. has been effectively treating our area for decades. We can identify that pest you have in a jar and discuss the steps necessary to take back your outdoor spaces and restore health to your trees, plants and grass.

Our Inspect and Treat Program identifies and treats plants being eaten by aphids, caterpillars, mites and leaf hoppers. We may also suggest soil or tree injections if necessary for larger infestations. Whether you have IPS Engraver Beetles, Emerald Ash Borers, Scale, Mountain Pine Beetles, or other insects destroying your greenery, we’re here to help.

We are always on the lookout for pests and diseases that can destroy large amounts of our landscape in short periods of time, such as Emerald Ash Borers, and Dutch Elm Disease. Our staff of certified arborists, horticulturists and foresters are trained to spot affected trees and know how to best eradicate the problem before it spreads through our community.

Soil Injections

Schulhoff Tree and Lawn Care utilizes soil injections as one way to preform specific insect control, such as aphids and the Elm Bark Beetle. This is a system in which the product is injected into the soil around a tree, or directly into a tree. The product will disperse around the tree and the insects will then feed on it.

Inspect and Treat Program

Inspect and treat programs are offered up to 3 times a year during the growing season. During our visit, we will inspect and treat plant material that has leaf feeding insects such as aphids, caterpillars, mites, and leaf hoppers.

Ips Engraver Beetle

The Ips Engraver Beetle is a very damaging urban and mountain insect. These beetles are throughout the metro area and are killing off many key large pines and spruce. With the hard drought years ago, our pines and spruce became extremely stressed, attracting these beetles.

Emerald Ash Borer

The Emerald Ash Borer is a pest that should not be taken lightly. It was found in Boulder County in the fall of 2013, but they are native to Eastern Asia. They have also been sighted in Michigan, Ohio and Illinois.

Scale

Scale affects a variety of trees. The insect adheres itself to the tree branch or needles and feeds on the nutrients and water of the plant. There are two families of scales out here.

Mountain Pine Beetle

Mountain Pine Beetles can devastate a forest, killing all trees in the area. Forest thinning and preventative spraying are the best ways to help control the spread. Schulhoff has been dealing with this insect extensively over many years and can help you put together a program to help protect your forest.

Elm Tree Problems

American Elm Preservation and control of the Dutch Elm Disease are vitally important if we are to protect and control the population of American and Dutch Elms in the Denver area. If you know of any of these majestic trees in your area, be sure to check them for an Elm Bark Beetle infestation.
