Landscape Insects and Control
|Emerald Ash Borer is a small metallic green colored beetle,measuring 1/2" long and 1/8" wide. It is is an invasive species, and infestation is highly destructive to ash trees causing branch dieback and eventual tree death. Untreated trees will typically perish 1-3 years after initial infestation. Ash trees are primarily treated by direct injection into the tree or soil drench. Some insecticides cannot be applied by homeowners and must be applied by licensed applicators. Read More|
|Bagworms are caterpillars that live inside spindle-shaped bags. This worm has become our most common landscape insect over the past few years. These unsighlty bugs hang down from the branches of evergreens, especially Junipers and Arborvitaes. Struyk Turf can control bagworms with our tree and shrub insect control. The optimal time to spray is the last 2 weeks of June and the first week of July. Read More|
|Mimosa Webworms feed primarily on the leaves of mimosa and honeylocust trees causing extensive damage to growth at the end of branches leaving an unsightly web. The larval stage of this pest is the most damaging.|
|Fall Webworms known principally for its larval stage, which spin their characteristic webs in many deciduous trees, such as Walnut and Maple. Our tree spraying will also control biting, piercing and sucking insects with Struyk Turf's control spray.|
|Japanese Beetles were first noticed in Southwest Iowa in 2008 and have
become a major problem because they can storm a tree, bush or flower and
completely defoliate it in a couple of days.
This is only a rescue treatment. Control is gained through soil injected insect control. Read More
|Scale Insects posses piercing/sucking mouthparts for feeding on the sap of most trees and shrubs, most notably maple and birch trees. They are concealed by a shell-like waxy or powdery substance. Scale can be found on all parts of a plant, including twigs, branches, flowers and foliage. These insects can be controlled with Struyk Turf's horticultural oil spray.|
