Pest and Insect Management

A Titan Tree Care ISA Certified Arborist can recommend a pest and insect management program to ensure your trees and landscape are healthy and protected from the damage that insect infestations can cause.

We will evaluate your trees and shrubs to identify the specific pests causing damage. This will allow us to recommend specialized, targeted treatments based on the specific pest and its life cycle. Your Arborist will create a personalized plan to manage the pest population, allowing the plant time to recover. Our goal is not eradication, but rather managing the populations within an acceptable threshold in order to best maintain your trees and foliage.

Tree Insects and Pests in D.C., Maryland, and Virginia

Tent caterpillars on tree

Tent Caterpillars

Tent caterpillars are common in the D.C. area in late spring to early summer. They can be recognized by the white silken nests they create in the wedges of tree branches. Titan arborists can help control these pests.

Aphids eating leaf on a tree


These insects are small, green, and like to suck the nutrients out of plants and trees. The sugary waste they leave behind can attract other bugs like ants. Look for curled or sticky leaves as a sign of aphid activity.

Ticks painlessly attach to animals and people to feed. They are common in the D.C. suburbs and are often found on deer. Ticks carry diseases, so it’s important that you work with an arborist to control Ticks on your property.
