Protection from Insect Infestations

The professionals at ArborLawn understand the importance of providing highly effective tree insect treatment for your yard and property. Our thorough tree and shrub insect control process begins by investigating the exact type of insect that is infiltrating your trees and shrubs. Then we develop a customized plan that will completely remove them without harming your plants.

Insects We Commonly Help To Control

General tree spray

General tree spray protects against diseases such as scab, rust, and powdery mildew, as well as insects like aphids, leafhoppers, and tent caterpillars.

Cooley Spruce Gall

Cooley Spruce Gall attacks Colorado, Norway, and White Spruce. Treatment for this pest is applied in early spring.

Diplodia Tip Blight

Diplodia Tip Blight is most commonly found on pine trees, such as the Austrian, Scotch, and Red Pines. The two-application process is sprayed in early spring with a second treatment two weeks later.

Birch Tree Injection

Birch Tree Injection protects against Birch Leaf Miner and Bronze Birch Borer and is injected into the soil or trunk depending on the timing of the application.


Needlecast is a fungus that infects Spruce and Douglas Fir trees and is treated with a two-part tree insect control.

Dormant Oil Spray

Dormant Oil Spray is sprayed on the foliage and bark of infested trees and shrubs to smother insect eggs and to scale insects.

Elm Tree Spray

Elm Tree Spray protects against the Elm Leaf Beetle and is sprayed on the leaf surface, bark, and the ground under the trees in mid-June.

Pine Shoot Borer

Pine Shoot Borer is a moth that frequently attacks young trees of the Austrian, Mugo, and Scotch Pine variety. Tree insect treatment for this pest is sprayed in late April.

Sawfly Larvae

Sawfly Larvae is a common insect that also attacks the Austrian, Mugo, and Scotch pines. Foliage is sprayed in late spring to early summer.

Gypsy Moth

Gypsy Moth can feed on leaves of more than 300 species of trees and shrubs including Oaks, Aspens, Birches, Lindens, Sweetgums, Crabapples, Hawthorns, Mountain Ash, and Willows.

Pin Oak iron injections

Pin Oak iron injections help with iron deficiency in pin oak trees which can cause stunted growth, dead branches, and yellow or brown leaves.

Emerald Ash Borer

Emerald Ash Borer injections protect Green and White Ash trees from the Emerald Ash Borer.

Scale Insect Spray

Scale Insect Spray is applied to the foliage and bark of trees and shrubs with scale crawlers either in June or mid-July.
