Rose aphids are feeding on new spring growth of roses and populations seem to be pretty heavy this spring. Feeding causes buds to curl up and deforms flower buds. Aphids are easily controlled with insecticides, although contact kill products may need to be applied multiple times to get good control. If your roses seem stunted or if you spot these small insects feeding on the buds, feel free to call us to take a look or treat.

Cedar apple rust and scab are a common disease of Apple trees in our area. This can be prevented by applying timely fungicide treatments in the spring. We recommend a minimum of two applications with a preferred third treatment to prevent these two diseases later this season. Call the office if you have questions on what type of funigicide to use or timing options.
