Fall is just around the corner

Fall is just around the corner, which means it’s time to think about Fall Pre-emergent weed control. Weeds are categorized as either broad leaf or grassy type weeds. A Pre-Emergent herbicide controls unwanted weeds and grasses by targeting the weed seed just before or immediately after the seed begins to germinate. Generally most pre-emergent are safe to use around established trees and shrubs as well as most ground cover. A pre-emergent should never be used in areas where seeds or bulbs have been planted or will be in the near future. Fall is also a great time for pre-emergence in areas where there is no irrigation because of rain fall, pre-emergence must be watered in to activate. At custom Ag we do pre-emergence in all areas of your landscape including: flower beds, landscape beds, lawns, open land i.e. fields, vacant lots, bare ground etc..

Sick of sap dripping everywhere?

With your plants growing season just around the corner it is time to protect your trees and shrubs with a preventative insecticide. A preventative insecticide eliminates unwanted insects that can harm your trees by sucking out its juices. The insects then secrete the juices back onto the plant causing a sticky substance known as honey dew (sap). This honey dew (sap) not only damages the plant but can be a nuisance to you by dropping onto walkways, windows, cars, outdoor furniture, and of course YOU! With our systemic insecticides we can guarantee year long control of sucking insects such as; aphids, whiteflies, soft scale, leaf eating bugs, leafminers, mealybugs, adelgids, psyllids and various others. Please call for details or a free estimate.
