Treating Lindens And Saucer Magnolia for Aphids and Scale - Summer 2022
Starting last Spring, I decided to be a little more proactive in terms of protecting some of our trees from pests. That started with the Greenspire Lindens that are currently espalaiered into a horizontal cordon. For the past few years, I noticed that the trees were being swarmed with yellow jackets and/or wasps. Turns out, they were there feasting on aphids that are drawn to Linden trees. So, starting last year, I treated both Lindens with five gallons of this tree protect & feed solution. It seemed to work and there were no wasps around all season.
