Spray Christmas Tree Insect Pests
Christmas trees are subject to attack by a number of insects and mites. Some are mainly nuisance pests while others can kill trees or severely reduce tree quality. The type, frequency and severity of insect attack normally varies with host, location and season, but virtually every Christmas tree planting will have some type of insect problem between establishment and harvest.

Christmas Tree Disease
Christmas trees are easily affected by fungus, especially needlecasts. Mist Blowers allow you to cover more square inches of surface area on your trees. You can blow through, around and over trees and get outstanding results.
Spray Container Stock & Ornamentals
Many of the most serious container stock, greenhouse and ornamental pests tend to be small insects including spider mites, aphids, whiteflies and thrips. Timely applications are key in controlling these pests before they cause significant damage.
Mist Blowers are perfect for fungicide and foliar fertilization applications.
Nursery and Greenhouse users are spraying trees, shrubs and container stock with application rates of 1/2 gallon to 40 gallons per acre without booms!
Foliar fertilization, a water soluble fertilizer that is sprayed on the foliage, may help small woody plants, especially plants that aren't getting enough iron. Foliar feeding of trees is becoming more popular and is often used to correct any micronutrient deficiencies. Iron chlorosis is one of the most common micronutrient deficiencies, due to typically high soil pH values. Iron can be added anytime during the growing season, as it does not stimulate excessive growth but corrects a chlorotic (leaf yellowing symptom) condition.
A Michigan State College study has shown plants absorb nutrients not only through the roots, but also through the foliage, the fruit, the twigs, the trunk and even the flowers. Plants can absorb nutrients 8 to 10 times more efficiently through their leaf surfaces than through their roots. When applying nutrients to the leaf, the nutrients move through the stomata downward through the plant--at the rate of about a foot an hour. When applying nutrients to the leaves in soluble forms, as much as 95 percent of what is applied may be used by the plant. If a similar amount is applied to the soil about 10 percent of it is available. Foliar feeding is effective even on dormant plants and trees.
