My magnolia tree seems to be emitting a type of sap. It gets all over my
car, especially on my windshield. A large number of wasps have started
gathering around these sappy excretions and it is getting dangerous out there.
I've read that the sap is actually an excretion of a bug, the magnolia
scale, that infests magnolia trees. I have noticed a little bit of white
bumby areas on some branches but nothing alarming.
I know there are some insecticide sprays that can be applied to the tree
at certain times of the year to help combat this problem. But I fear
that applying this stuff will be beyond my skill/commitment level.
So, does anybody out there know of a company in Toronto, Canada that
specializes in this type of pest control?
I used PCO last year for something else but was not completely satisfied
with the results.
What type of company should I be looking for, a pest control company or
a landscaping oriented company?
