At Rossco’s we employ an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach to are insect and disease management.

Trees in nature have evolved to develop a high degree of resistance to threats from insects and diseases. Conversely, urban trees face increased challenges due to their harsh growing conditions, leaving their resistance compromised and more vulnerable to an attack.

It is vital that potential problems are identified and strategies created to protect trees in the urban landscape, as scale insects, foliage diseases, trunk borers, decay organisms, and other pests and diseases are attracted to weakened trees.

Integrated pest management programs are the best solution for protecting your valuable trees. We recognize that not all insects are detrimental to a trees health; in fact some are beneficial to natural life cycles. Instead of blanket spraying properties with chemical pesticides, our plant healthcare technicians perform detailed property evaluations. After analyzing your property’s insect infestations, soil conditions, plant selection, and root problems, our technicians will provide you with a written report on treatments applied, observations of conditions, and a list of recommendations. Our treatments are based on a logical approach and, when insect control is necessary, we use low impact treatments such as EcoJet to reduce the use of harsh chemicals. Rossco’s ensures an ongoing commitment to keeping your trees healthy and safe, reducing costs, and promoting environmentally-friendly tree cares practices.

Please contact the professionals at Rossco’s for the development of a custom management plan for your tree insect and disease issues.
