Spray Program

Our Spray Program Keeps Harmful Diseases & Insects from Harming Your Roses.

Roses have many harmful predators that will attack. These predators come in the form of insects and diseases. In many cases, once you see evidence of a problem, it is too late. In other cases, treatment can still be effective. Whether your garden is in Cincinnati or Kentucky, these disease and insect problems can greatly affect the aesthetics of your roses or even be fatal to the plant overall.

Common insects:

  • Midge
  • Thrips
  • Borers
  • Caterpillars
  • Spider mites
  • Caterpillars
  • Japanese beetles
  • Cucumber beetles

Common diseases:

  • Black spot
  • Powdery mildew
  • Rose Rosette (Witch’s broom)
  • Stem canker and dieback
  • Botrytis Blight
  • Crown gall

Our specially formulated blends of sprays prevent and/or control the issues that harm or kill roses. When proper pruning and deadheading practices are employed, coupled with our spray program, your rose garden will have what it needs to flourish.
