Control for Trees

Insect control is necessary  because numerous insects and mites can cause irreparable damage to your trees. Certain insects and mites can harm and defoliate trees by eating leaves and needles, while wood-boring insects kill trees by shutting down the flow of nutrients to the trees. Other pests transmit diseases to healthy trees by feeding on them.
