What’s With All the Winter Moths?

Have you noticed small, brown moths in your headlights while driving home from work? Or, maybe congregating around your lights and doors at your house? The moths are harmless now but in the spring they will wreak havoc on your trees. The "Winter Moth" is most active in late November through the end of January. However, the damage does not occur until the trees begin to bud in the spring. Winter moths lay their eggs in the buds of deciduous trees (ex: crabapple, pear, etc) and hardwoods such as oak, maple, and sycamore trees. When the infected trees bloom in the spring, caterpillars (previously moths) will eat the leaves and cause damage to your trees. Our MA Certified Arborists use a copy of a naturally occurring soil fungus to protect your trees from the harmful pests without harming the tree or nearby shrubs. If you spot these pests and insects flying around your property now and would like an estimate to treat them in the spring, please call Lynch Landscape & Tree Service as soon as possible.

Anti- Desiccants (compounds applied to plants to reduce dehydration and prevent drying)

As the days grow shorter and the weather gets cooler we New Englanders know that the winter months are just around the corner. As we do every year it's time to prep our yards for the upcoming weather. With this comes Anti- Desiccants. Anti- desiccants are a compound applied to plants to help prevent dryness and dehydration of your plants and shrubs in the long hard winter months. This is important especially to your new plantings that may not have established themselves yet and could use that little bit of extra protection. If you are interested in learning more about this please call us here at Lynch Landscaping and we will provide you with up to date information as well as a free estimate for your own trees and shrubs.

EAB Detected in Massachusetts (Emerald Ash Borer)

The Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) confirmed last month that the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) has been detected in the town of Dalton in western Massachusetts. The EAB is a small flying beetle that has the ability to kill trees fast and stay evasive by boring under the trees bark and into its conductive system. Multiple local authorities including the DCR, United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the USDAs Forest Services are collaborating to prevent the further spread of the beetles. A quarantine/ regulation would be placed on the following items as an early step in prevention:

Firewood of all hardwood speciesNursery Stock of the genus (Ash)Green Lumber of the genus (Ash)All other Ash components dead and aliveAny product that could serve to be a risk in the further spread of the EAB

To report suspicious tree damage or insect sighting you can contact the EAB hotline at  1-866-322-4512 or visit the website at www.massnrc.org/pest

Touch a Truck

On September 22nd Lynch partnered with the Town of Wayland for their annual "Touch a Truck" event which gained the interest of over 2,500 attendees. Lynch contributed by bringing a bucket truck (cherry picker) and the plant healthcare spray truck. This event provides both children and adults the opportunity to get an inside look at how some of emergency/ utility vehicles work, as well as some of their special features.

The Growing Mosquito Threat

The threat of mosquitos has become more than just the annoyance of its buzzing or the irritation left behind after it has bit you. A real concern has come forward with the recent spikes in West Nile outbreaks as well as the more local Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE). The West Nile epidemic tends to peak along the same time as EEE in mid to late August. However West Nile is much more prominent in the states of Texas, Mississippi, Louisiana, South Dakota, and Oklahoma. Though not as common as West Nile, the growing threat in Massachusetts is EEE. This year alone the virus has killed two locals as well as infecting many others. The onset of the viruses can be identified by a mosquito bite that is accompanied by any of the following symptoms.

  • High fever
  • Severe Headaches
  • Vomiting

The best prevention is long sleeves/ pants and bug spray as well as avoiding places with standing water (Where they like to breed) at times around dusk and dawn when they are the most active.

Deer Ticks

In Massachusetts the deer tick is a common tick and just as well it is a common threat for outdoor enthusiast. Between the months of April and September these ticks are most active. Although these ticks cannot jump or fly, they have the ability to cling to anyone/ anything that passes by and brushes up against it. A bite from a deer tick can cause a human to contract more than one disease at a time. It is possible to contract Lyme disease and Babesiosis at the same time. Early diagnosis of these diseases can help greatly however a prolonged exposure to the tick increases the chance that the human will contract either of the two diseases. The most apparent sign of a deer tick is the bull's eye shaped rash originating near the original bite.

The voters have spoken and in 2012 Lynch Landscape won the award for best landscaper for both Wayland and Sudbury by an overwhelming majority. As a tribute to our work a client of ours described the companies work as follows. "I am absolutely delighted with the landscaping of my yard.... it was a pleasure to deal with Lynch!" Alexandra Statland commented.

Well spring is officially here and as the buds on the trees develop further we want you readers to be aware of the potential threats to your foliage. One of the more prominent threats is the winter moth. In early spring begins its quest to defoliate your tree before it matures. Even as it matures into an adult caterpillar it continues to wreak havoc on your trees. They typically feed off of oaks, maples, basswood, ash, and other fruiting trees. After mating the female scurries up the host tree and lays small barrel shaped eggs its entire way (up to 150). We here at Lynch Landscaping can help you identify the early signs of them and take care of them before they can have any impact on your property. For more information, or if you would like a representative to come take a look at any of your plants and trees please call us immediately.

Crabgrass and Pre-Emergent

As the last remnants of winter disappear and our lawns begin to bounce back from the cold harsh weather. We here at Lynch Landscaping know that this is the perfect time to get a jump on your lawns health. What better way to do that then with Pre- emergent treatment for crab grass. When the temperature begins to average 50+, crabgrass begins to germinate and produce more seeds. This is the time to apply the pre-emergent herbicide to kill off and prevent and further production of crab grass before it really gains ground on your lawn. To receive a free estimate or set a date for application please call us immediately.
