Dormant Season Spraying
To reduce the need for pesticides during spring and summer, a winter application of oil
and copper kills potentially deadly fungus spores and destructive insect populations,
such as scale.
- This treatment is especially important for fruit trees.
- Highly recommended as a preventive treatment for ornamental such as
Japanese maples, crape myrtles, roses and many ornamental trees.
- Dormant sprays can help reduce the amount of spraying needed later in the year.
