Crape Myrtle Update

A few months back we purposely let our crape myrtles get infested with scale. We did this so we could show you the effectiveness of actually treating your crape myrtle. Everyone has seen black sooty mold which is caused by the scale. There is a 3 steps program which includes drenching the tree twice, spacing out every two weeks. We used a product called Zylam. You also want to do a soil drench with a deep root injection. In doing that, you can drastically reduce the number of scale on your crape myrtles. If you can reduce the scale, you can reduce the mold. Getting ahead of it is key! If you have any questions, let us know. Y’all have a great day!  http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/zylam-liquid-systemic-insecticide-p-3868.html
