Winter Moth Warning

Well spring is officially here and as the buds on the trees develop further we want you readers to be aware of the potential threats to your foliage. One of the more prominent threats is the winter moth.  In early spring begins its quest to defoliate your tree before it matures. Even as it matures into an adult caterpillar it continues to wreak havoc on your trees. They typically feed off of oaks, maples, basswood, ash, and other fruiting trees. After mating the female scurries up the host tree and lays small barrel shaped eggs its entire way (up to 150). We here at Lynch Plant Healthcare know that they can be treated with a simple organic oil spray and would be more than happy to assist you with the eradication of these pests. For more information or an estimate please contact us immediately.
