Target Treatment Program
Carpenter Costin's Target Treatments are designed to care for insect infested plants or disease-infested plants through a single application basis for such problems as Hemlock Adelgid, Mite Spider, and Aphids on plants. These treatments are best suited for properties with only one or two specific insects or diseases, and for shade trees up to 20 feet.
Pest Management (5 Visit Program)
Our Pest Management Program is a comprehensive program of insect and disease management for ornamental trees and shrubs up to 20 feet in height. During each visit, our pest management technicians will examine each plant on your property for insect and disease issues and automatically spot-treat all manageable problems. Treatments on this program consist of both traditional and non-toxic methods.
Plant Health Care (8 Visit Program)
Carpenter Costin’s Plant Health Care Program is our most intensive approach for an ornamental tree and shrub care. This program features eight monthly inspection and treatment visits from April through November and consists of traditional and non-toxic treatments. We will also make recommendations about cultural practices, such as pruning, required to maintain vigorous and beautiful plants.
This program focuses on your plants' growing environment. Soil treatments, pH correction, microbe inoculation, and mycorrhizae supplementation may be used to help the soil and give your trees and shrubs the best chance for excellent health. Horticultural oils, insecticidal soaps, fish and seaweed extracts, trunk injections, plant extracts, compost tea and beneficial microbes are some products and treatment methods that will be used.
