Proactive and preventative tree and shrub care is the best defense against wood boring beetles in Castle Rock. Even if you believe that your tree might be too damaged to save, Lawn Doctor has successfully revived trees and shrubs that have suffered as much as 40 percent damage. Our two-pronged attack on the Emerald Ash Borer involves an annual soil injection and protective sprays of your tree or shrub per year to prevent future infestation.
Merit soil injections are applied to the roots of a tree, where it absorbs the insecticide and pushes it through the entire tree out to the leaves. This protects the tree from the inside out by killing insects that feed directly on the tree or shrub. This method of shrub and tree insect control is great for trees in Castle Rock that are too large to effectively be sprayed and is especially effective on aggressive wood boring beetles.
Lawn Doctor is concerned about the environment in Castle Rock, which is why we default to using all-natural insect control methods. Our spray that prevents eggs from hatching is an environmentally friendly, non-pesticide, dormant oil and the Merit soil injections we used do not affect any insects that do not directly feed on the trees. You can rest easy knowing that the honeybees and other pollinators in Castle Rock will not be affected during the treatment.
