It’s the morning of March 26 and there’s something weird happening outside my office. The wind is blowing, and when I walk outdoors my face gets hit by a strange kind of pain. How can I describe it? It feels like a million tiny knives are cutting me all over. I believe in some parts of the world they call the sensation “cold.”
After a freakishly warm January and February, it was a bit of a shock to get some bitter cold days in March. I’ll bet all those early-blooming daffodils were cussing out Mother Nature as they shivered away.
Anyway, spring is in the air and that means I’ll soon be in your neighborhood spraying oak trees for leaf rollers.
Leaf rollers are the fuzzy green worms that roll themselves up in young oak leaves, then munch away to their heart’s content. So, how do we Home Defenders protect your trees? We treat them with a safe product, lovingly coating the tender leaves with a gentle protective barrier that lasts until warm summer breezes beckon us to beaches, bikinis and barbecues. (Did I lay that on a little too thick?)
Do you want your sheltering oaks treated this spring? Then call our office today, before those hungry worms take your shade away. I’ll personally come out, inspect your trees, and give you a free estimate.
If the cool March weather continues, I guess I’ll have to invest in an exotic garment foreign to us Southern Californians. I believe in some parts of the world they call it a “coat.”
I just hope it doesn’t cover my 70’s style hairy chest because all the foxy ladies love that. (Now that was laying it on too thick.)
