The most common pest that affects a large number of pines in Spain: the processionary
What annoyances or problems can the processionary infestation cause?
The ideal time to treat this pest is during the months of September and October. however, the specialist must take into account factors such as geographic location and climate when spraying.
Methods for the treatment of the processionary
The objective of spray spraying is to impregnate the pines with phytosanitary product as much as possible. The spray gun is very effective in this task, since its application angle is very wide and allows a great diffusion of the product in just a few movements.
We use this method to treat the taller pine trees, as the gun cannot cover the entire length of it. The pole tool allows us to reach the highest branches and the tops of the pines, distributing the product evenly throughout the specimen.
Injections or endotherapy
Contrary to the previous methods, this technique is based on the direct application of the product inside the pine. To do this, a small hole is made in the trunk of the specimen through which a certain amount of phytosanitary product is injected, which acts against the pest from within.
In the Processionary Treatment in pines with a height greater than 15 meters, the aforementioned spraying methods will not allow the entire specimen to be reached. In these cases, at Raíz Verde we use a basket truck or a lifting platform to be able to reach the necessary height and carry out the fumigation correctly and efficiently. Before carrying out any pruning or felling work, it is important to eliminate pests before doing other work such as a pruning in height, and thus avoid other infections in the garden and take care of the health of people, workers and animals.
If you see processionary nests in your pines, do not hesitate to call us. We also offer the service of its felling and removal.
