Watch our informative video on dormant oil treatment for tree pest control with host and ISA Certified Arborist Wes Rivers. In this episode, we delve into the fascinating world of horticulture oil and its significant role in suppressing overwintering insects. Wes explores the specific benefits of dormant oil and how it can effectively combat insect problems commonly encountered on trees in North Texas, such as aphids, scales, lace bugs, and caterpillars.

Dormant oil is a highly refined horticultural oil that we expertly mix with water and an emulsifier to ensure a homogenous solution. The beauty of this product lies in its ability to asphyxiating the insects, rather than relying on toxins to eliminate them. This makes dormant oil a preferred organic treatment option for tree pest control.

Timing is crucial when it comes to utilizing dormant oil. We strategically apply it during the dormant season when the trees are devoid of leaves. This allows us to mix the oil at higher rates without the risk of foliage burn, maximizing its control effectiveness. By targeting overwintering insects, we can prevent them from causing significant damage to the trees in the upcoming season.

Our experienced team understands the importance of using dormant oil for effective pest management. With one well-timed application, we can help safeguard your trees against these persistent pests. Join us in this video as we share insights, tips, and best practices for utilizing dormant oil to its fullest potential.
