  • Preventative sprays – Menchhofer Tree Care arborists will use preventative tree sprays when they feel that a tree is particularly prone to an insect or disease. This will be applied just before the pest in question is expected to become active
  • Curative sprays – if we discover that a pest is already feeding on your trees, our arborists will apply a curative spray to prevent the insect from causing too much damage.
  • Targeted sprays – targeted sprays are made to control a specific disease or insect during certain points in the season. The timing of these sprays is particularly important.
  • Periodic sprays – these sprays are more generalized and will be applied on a regular schedule in order to protect your trees from pests and disease.
