Many tree services in Suitland offer insect control treatments protect trees and shrubs. Most insects in the landscape aren't harmful to plants, but there are insects that can damage or even kill landscape trees and shrubs. Tree service arborists that work in Suitland are trained to know what insects are harmful and what plants to inspect to look for harmful insects.

The first step in an insect control program is to have an arborist inspect the trees and shrubs on the property. This initial inspection gives the arborist an idea of what trees or shrubs on the property might be hosts to harmful insects.

Based on the initial property inspection the arborist can recommend an appropriate insect control program. The insect control treatments that are recommended are usually based on what trees or shrubs are on the property and what harmful insects are known to be common in Suitland.

Depending on the trees and shrubs on the property insect control treatments may be scheduled throughout the growing season, or they may be recommended to be done at a particular time of the season to target a particular species of harmful tree or shrub insect.


Tree services in Suitland use one of three methods to apply insect control treatments. Insect control treatments may be sprayed on the foliage or trunk of the tree or shrub, or injected into the soil around the base of the tree or shrub, or injected directly into the tree trunk.

Harmful insects are more likely to attack trees or shrubs that are under stress and are also more damaging to stressed trees. For this reason, the arborist that inspects your trees and shrubs may also recommend tree fertilization for some, or all, of the trees and shrubs on the property. Healthy trees and shrubs are able to resist, and recover quicker from, the damage caused by harmful insects.

Some tree services that work in Suitland also offer treatments for Tick Control or spray for Mosquitoes. These treatments reduce the number of disease-carrying pests venturing into your outdoor living areas. Tree services can provide Mosquito and Tick sprays as a one-time treatment, but better Mosquito and Tick control will be obtained with a series of treatments scheduled throughout the warmer months when Ticks and Mosquitos are active.


The tree service that provides insect control for your trees and shrubs may also offer a Perimeter Pest Control program. Some products used to control harmful insects in the landscape can also be used to keep nuisance insects from entering homes. Perimeter Pest Control treatments place a protective band around the home during the growing season to discourage nuisance insects, centipedes, and spiders from entering your home and can often make interior spraying for insects unnecessary.
