TOTAL PEST CONTROL, INC. feels that it is important that you know what to expect from our Shrub and Lawn Service Program. It is a partnership between TOTAL and you, our part is the fertilization, weed control, insecticides and fungi control. Your part is the proper cutting and most important watering to much or to little. Many irrigation systems develop dead zones which leads to areas of to much or to little water, which can cause major problems.
1. Please keep in mind, our service provides control, not elimination of shrub insects and disease. An example of control is our periodic treatment of Lace Wings. Because there are several generations of Lace Wings (as there are with many kinds of shrub pests) over the course of a season, our quarterly Shrub Service keeps the Shrubs from being damaged by a pest infestation. An infested shrub is on in which the insect population has taken over the shrub to the point of creating damage. There are times when a shrub will develop an infestation regardless of the treatment schedule. This can happen for a number of reasons, on of which would be improper watering. Treatments for Fungi (which can develop in “high moisture conditions” will be done as needed. If you feel that your shrubs have a Fungi problem please call for service immediately.
2. Along with Shrub pest and disease control, TOTAL PEST CONTROL SERVICES provides fertilization to Shrubs four (4) times per year.
3. The resident along with TOTAL PEST CONTROL SERVICES must monitor the condition of the Shrubs. If you see areas that appear to be dying out or an abundance of Shrub pests, rather that the normal occasional pest, call us. Remember, proper treatment combines with proper watering will control and maintain a healthy environment resulting in attractive, healthy Shrubs.
4. As our signs posted at the time of service indicates, the products we use, once dry are perfectly safe.
