Many people ask us if we spray trees. We answer we don’t. We inject them.
And here is why:
Tree spraying is so harmful to the environment! Any time you spray the tree with a pesticide all the chemicals can make their way into a water source, such as a river, ocean, or pond.
Another way pesticides can spread and cause potential harm is by volatilization. Volatilization occurs when a pesticide turns into a gas or vapor after it has been sprayed, allowing it to travel through the air and spread to different pieces of land. This can be harmful for wildlife.
Not only are pesticides dangerous to the environment, but they are also hazardous to our health! Pesticides have been linked to cancer, ADHD and even birth defects. They also have the potential to harm the nervous system, the reproductive system, and the endocrine system!
Another reason that we don’t use sprays to get rid of the pest in the trees is that they really don’t work that well! Spray only reaches the top surface of the tree and it can be quickly washed off by rain!
Tree injections, on the other hand, are so much more effective! Trunk injection is the most effective pest control. Their application is very quick too! Injections are placed directly into the tree, limiting any impact to the environment around you! The tree absorbs it all within a couple of days. There is no waste to it and no pollution!
