Insect & Disease Control

Insects and diseases can destroy the beauty and function of plants in your landscape. Also, many of the most damaging landscape pest problems that exist are caused by a pest carelessly introduced from another area of the world. (Dutch Elm Disease, Asian Long-horned Beetle, Emerald Ash Borer, Gypsy Moth). Our staff is trained to analyze detect landscape plant problems, and correct them using the most effective and least invasive technique. A small amount of prevention is much better than a large amount of cure, to correct a neglected landscape pest problem. Our tick control program features short and long-term treatments to reduce your exposure to disease-carrying ticks.

Insect and Pest Control Application

Let’s face it, your family is far more important than a few plants and shrubs. That’s why at Red Cedar, we use the most organic and non-toxic insect and pest control applications available. Whenever we are faced with insect or disease management for a treasured customer, we ask ourselves of the solution: would we apply this to our own property? Would we expose our family to this? If we can answer yes, then we’re confident in its effectiveness and safety.

Insects and Disease are Natural

Insects and disease management exists because these are natural processes that occur. Sometimes insects are brought in through human contact, and diseases are inadvertently introduced in the same manner, but for the most part, it’s all part of nature’s cycles. That doesn’t mean that you have to endure the burden of their destructive tendencies.

While Red Cedar makes no guarantees about the ability to protect against or eliminate all insects or diseases, we have been in the industry for many years and have a solid track record of producing the best results possible.

Diagnosis is the Key

The best way to protect your plants, shrubs, and trees is to have a proper maintenance and diagnosis plan in place. The earliest signs of trouble can offer you the opportunity to combat the invading species. Red Cedar is your frontline defense against damaging insects and deadly diseases.

Tick Management

Ticks have become an increasing problem to people and animals throughout New York. Ticks are blood-feeders that require an animal host to survive and reproduce. They feed on a wide host range and attack people, pets, livestock, birds, and reptiles.

There are about 80 species of ticks in the United States (850 species worldwide). However, only about 12 or so in the U.S. are of major public health or veterinary concerns with a few others that occasionally attack humans.

Ticks can be a nuisance; their bites can cause irritation and, in the case of some ticks, paralysis. Severe infestations on animals can cause anemia, weight loss, and even death from the consumption of large quantities of blood. Ticks can also transmit many human and animal disease pathogens, which include viruses, bacteria, and more.

An estimated three quarters of all Lyme disease cases are acquired from ticks picked up during activities around the home. With the steady increase in the spread of Lyme disease, there is a need to learn how to manage or control the tick problem, learn how to reduce or manage tick populations, and therefore risk of disease, in the residential landscape.
