Methods for the treatment of the processionary
El objetivo de las fumigaciones es impregnar todo lo posible los pinos de producto fitosanitario. Esta herramienta nos ayuda con dicha tarea debido a que su ángulo de aplicación es ancho y permite una mayor difusión de producto en un menor rango de movimientos.
We use this method to treat the taller pine trees, as the gun cannot cover the entirety of it. The pole tool allows us to reach the highest branches and the tops of the pines, making sure to distribute the product evenly throughout the specimen.
Injections or endotherapy
This method, unlike the previous ones, is based on the direct application of the product inside the pine. In this way, a small perforation is made in the trunk of the specimen through which the necessary amount of phytosanitary product is injected into its interior.
It should be noted that we can find some pines whose height is greater than 15 meters and, therefore, we will not be able to reach them correctly with the methods mentioned above. Therefore, in these situations we have a basket truck or a lifting platform so that we can raise the necessary height to carry out the fumigation correctly and efficiently.
