Treating Hemlocks

ASHEVILLE NC – If you have hemlock trees, inspect them for signs of hemlock woolly adelgids.

This is a good time of year to treat smaller trees with insecticidal soap or horticultural oil. Fall is also a good time to apply a systemic soil drench treatment on larger trees.

For more information, view BCTV’s Hemlock Woolly Adelgid video, check out NC State University’s “Recommendations for Hemlock Woolly Adelgid Control in the Landscape,” or call Buncombe County Cooperative Extension at 255-5522.
