Aphids Treatment in Arlington, TX.

Aphids are tiny insect pests that are an exceptionally common residential outdoor habitat annoyance and are prevalent worldwide. Upon initial invasion they are somewhat non-threatening; however, if ignored they rapidly overtake the residence and become extremely destructive to both trees and plants. They are a continual nuisance throughout Arlington, Texas and the DFW metroplex and certified arborists are endlessly addressing the varying degrees of their destruction. There are over four thousand different species of aphids and their size and color vary depending upon their species. Typically, aphids are green and no larger than the dots on a ladybug, but they can become as large as nearly half an inch and sometimes are red, brown, yellow or black in color. Generally, when aphid infestation begins to manifest it is most often when the health of the tree or plant has been subjected to stressful conditions and is weakened. Although aphids have a short life span, they reproduce at a rapid rate, having many generations within one year. Due to their swift reproduction, it is exceptionally fast for them to overtake an outdoor living environment. When you first notice a tree is exhibiting signs of reduced health and vigor, contact a tree care specialist immediately!

Aphids Treatment Tree Disease

A tree evaluation report prepared by an experienced plant pathologist will be based-upon the confirmation of aphid presence on the property and the physical symptoms the tree in question is exhibiting. Aphids can completely engulf the buds, branches, an underside of leaves and foliage stems and are highly visible when their population has increased and they are clustered together. They extract the nutrients out of the foliage and leaves that are infested will yellow, wilt and begin dying and curling inward. These predators initially prefer to hide on the underside of leaves and are sometimes so tiny they often go unnoticed at a quick glance, so the certified arborist will closely inspect the leaves. As they feed, aphids produce a sticky substance known as honeydew and this gooey liquid will be present on new stem growth and within close range of their occupation and can develop into black mold on the tree's foliage. This honeydew then attracts ants who further aid in spreading the destruction by protecting the aphids and transporting them throughout the environment! Upon confirmed diagnosis, the best Arlington tree expert will develop and present a personalized treatment and on-going care plan to eliminate these destructive tiny pests and prevent them from reappearing.
