What Is Dormant Oil & What Is It Used For?
We are commonly asked, “What can we do over winter to protect trees and shrubs for the oncoming season?” Dormant oils are a great solution.
Certain insects lay eggs in the fall season on trees and shrubs. Over winter and spring, larva will emerge. Untreated overtime, the larva can cause significant damage to trees, shrubs and your landscape.
Applying dormant oil helps control overwintering insect populations. Oils are less toxic for beneficial insects, like lady bugs, birds and other animals. Dormant oils are easy and cost effective.
