1. What can I do to prevent insect problems around my home?
First, select plants that are less prone to attract insects. Next, remove loose debris, such as leaves, from around the foundation of your house. This gives pests less places to nest. Lastly, secure the perimeter of your home, which ensures that insects won’t bother you for months at a time.
2. How do I stop insects from coming inside my home?
Perimeter treatments create a powerful barrier around your house, stopping insects that try to invade your home. These formulas work immediately, killing pests by contact and preventing new infestations. AMDRO® Pest Block Home Perimeter works on a wide range of more than 200 common insect species. To target a specific ant or cockroach, try AMDRO® Ant Block® Home Perimeter Ant Bait or AMDRO® Roach Block™ Home Perimeter Roach Bait.
3. How do I identify a sick plant?
Keep a close eye on your plant, looking for any insects or discoloration, especially during the growing season. Early detection should give you enough time to control the issue.
4. What time of year should I focus most on protecting my lawn and garden from insects?
The most problematic insects tend to show up during growing seasons. In warmer regions, these insects can be a year-round issue. In general, insects overwinter when it’s colder and rear their ugly heads when temperatures heat up.
5. Do insect control products harm plants?
Insect control products are designed to protect the plants being treated against harmful insects — causing no harm to the host plants. This layer of protection encourages the host plant to grow and stay as healthy as possible. The best way to further ensure no harm to the treated area is to precisely follow the directions on the product’s label.
6. What’s the best way to protect my trees and shrubs?
Unfortunately, trees and shrubs get it from every angle. Their leaves, bark, and roots all fall victim to different insect intruders. The best way to protect against these insects is by using a concentrate that protects from the inside out, like AMDRO® Tree & Shrub Care. The formula is absorbed through the roots and transferred throughout the plant. The insect is killed when it feeds on the leaves, bark, or roots of the plant. The application kills and prevents the infestation of many problem insects, such as aphids, emerald ash borers, Japanese beetles, and more listed on the label.
