Common Pests In the Seattle Washington Area
Powdery mildew is a fungus that is a frequent problem in the Pacific Northwest. There are many different strains that leave a white powder-like substance on leaves. If left untreated, it can severely stunt or kill the host plant.
Apple maggots have become a serious pest with backyard apple growers in Washington state. First detected in Portland, OR, in 1979, apple maggots have spread throughout the Pacific Northwest and it is a scourge.
If you have brown spots on your apples and leaves, you may have scab. Like powdery mildew, scab is a fungus that attacks apple, crabapple and pear trees. This disease infests new leaf growth and if not treated can affect the fruit as well.
These are one of the most common pests in most landscapes. They attack virtually all ornamental plants, including rhododendrons, laurel and azaleas. Adults simply notch the leaves, which can be aesthetically unpleasant. The larva can infect a plant’s root system and may be lethal to the plant. We offer complete control for all of these pests starting with proper pruning and fertilization to keep plants strong and healthy. If you become infested with any of these pests, call us! We offer complete treatment plans to mitigate and eliminate these and other pests.
