Gato Shrub Care
True shrub care begins with nutrition. With time, the soil around your shrubbery becomes depleted of the vital nutrients that keeps the plant healthy. The easy solution is to use a fertilizer. Applying a fertilizer at the appropriate time each season helps your landscaping to fight off insects and diseases by making sure your plants are at their healthiest.
Pests like insects can cause harm to your shrubs, damaging and even killing them if left untreated. Many insects live inside your vegetation, while also using it as their food source. If your shrubs are harboring an infestation they can become unhealthy, which could result in the loss of the plant. Infestations have also been known to seriously damage nearby building structures, which may result in costly repairs.
Gato Shrub Pest Protection
Instead of waiting around for a problem to pop up, we strongly recommend being proactive and ensuring the protection of your landscaping. Gato Guard's trained professionals will treat the foliage of your shrubs to defend against pests that can decimate even the healthiest plant life. Applying the spray at the right time each season can greatly reduce the risk of shrub pests.
Another way to protect against unwanted shrub invaders is the introduction of dormant oil treatments. Our dormant oil suffocates insect eggs, which hinders the hatching process, while also softening the exoskeletons of the surviving insects.
For certain variety of pests, Gato Guard suggests systemic treatments that are actually injected into the plant allowing the protectant to spread throughout the plant. This is strongly recommended on larger foliage that can be difficult to spray.
