In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some of the basic themes you should be considering when preparing for a tree spraying or similar appointment for your property. Used to eliminate pests, fungus and other forms of disease that may impact trees, tree spraying is a valuable process – but you need to ensure that it’s being done properly, and that you’re working with experienced professionals who will be providing the services you need.
At Bug Busters, we’re here to offer a wide range of tree spraying services to clients throughout Park City and other parts of Utah. What are some of the other important preparation areas or questions you should be asking before tree spraying, both in terms of procuring the proper services and ensuring you have the right specialists assisting you? Here’s a primer.
Areas Not Covered
While most tree spraying programs are relatively comprehensive for the trees on your property, they may or may not include certain additional areas like shrubs or others. There may also be certain specific diseases or conditions that aren’t part of the standard program, either because they’re rare or because they require specialized equipment. A good tree spraying specialist will be up-front about their capabilities and the areas they do and don’t extend to.
In addition to the above, however, you want a specialist who, in cases where their services do not cover your issues, are willing to make recommendations. Our tree spraying staff has spent years in the field, and we have numerous connections locally – if there’s a particular service we can’t provide for you, we’ll be happy to recommend someone who can.
Expertise and Experience
Like with any other home or property service you’re receiving from a third party, it’s important to check into their expertise and past experience. You want a company with a solid employment history and long-tenured staff, rather than one that has a revolving door of employees every six months.
Reviews and Previous Work
One of the key areas you can investigate with regard to the above theme is some of the information that’s available publicly. Any tree spraying specialist should be able to provide you with several examples of their past work, plus with client reviews through Google or other online services. Any company that cannot offer these, or tries to hide them from you initially, is throwing up some pretty major red flags that you should be paying attention to.
