Plan to protect the woody ornamental plants in your landscape or nursery, using this manual as a guide. You will be able to minimize your chemical use. Many insects are vulnerable to controls for only a short time, after which use of pesticides is ineffective. A huge array of woody plants were scientifically observed in the field by Don Orton, to determine the best possible time to spray for pest control.
This book details a SIMPLE method for timing spraying to the insects most susceptible developmental stage. You can correlate your control method with an easily observable characteristic of common ornamental plant development. For example, spray for Euonymus scale when Northern Catalpa begins to bloom. The "crawler" stage of Euonymus scale COINCIDES with the early bloom of Northern Catalpa.
Also included are many alternative indicators and a three-way cross-reference format for easy field or high volume use. A must for every nurseryman, landscaper, grower, horticulturist and gardener interested in conservation, simplicity and savings. New edition includes chapter on Disease Control Timing.
