Christmas Trees

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. Virtually every christmas tree planting will have some type of insect problem between establishment and harvest. Christmas trees are easily affected by fungus, especially needlecasts. Mist Sprayers allow you to cover more square inches of surface area on trees. You can blow through, around, and over trees AND get outstanding results.  


Christmas Tree growers have found that the A1 Mist Sprayer to be more efficient than any other sprayer method. It is also much less expensive They have found that they can reduce fungicide application rates by 30-35% while retaining effectiveness. Growers have effectively treated for insects and diseases while using as little as 5-6 gallons of spray per acre.


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.

Foliar fertilization, a water soluble fertilizer that is sprayed on foliage, may help small woody plants, especially plants that are not 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 pHvalues. Iron can be added anytime during the growing season, as it does not stimulate excessive growth but corrects a chlorotic condition (leaf yellowing symptom).

  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 8-10 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 plan--at the rate of about a foot an hour. When applying nutrients to the leaves in soluble forms, as much as 95% of what is applied may be used by the plant. If a similar amount is applied to the soil about 10% of it is available. Foliar feeding is effective even on dormant plants and trees.


Tall Trees & Windbreaks

A1 Mist Sprayers can reach to the top of very tall trees and provide you with great coverage from top to bottom when spraying insecticides and fungicides. You can spray up to 120' high!.






  Spray your windbreaks to protect trees from insect damage and disease. Spraying your windbreaks will also reduce the amount of insects on your property due to eliminating hiding and resting areas. Mist Sprayers allow you to use less chemical and still provide effective coverage.
