Treatment Timings for Disease and Insects
Thursday, October 21 @ 10am-11am
Timing treatments to control pests and diseases of trees can be a challenge for the arborist. The science of Integrated Pest Management offers some tools to make this process easier and more reliable. Kent Honl of Rainbow Tree Company will show how to apply the concepts of IPM to treatment timing, highlighting growing degree days, monitoring strategies, and categorizing pests and diseases to create treatment protocols. This application can result in more effective treatments, less off-target damage to the environment, and happier clients.
