TREE INSECT CONTROL
Are your trees being bugged by bugs?? There are countless amounts of insects that live in, on and around trees. While some are harmless, other insects can cause serious damage – and even death of your trees.
Boring insects are one of the most harmful insects to trees. Without treatment that can kill your tree. These insects bore into the tree; which if left untreated, blocks off water conducting tissues to the tree and starves the tree of the important moisture and nutrients the tree needs in order to live. You can spot signs of boring insects by entrance and exit holes in the bark of your tree.
Chewing insects are another insect that can cause a lot of damage to your trees. These insects, depending on the type, will feed on the leaves of the trees; or on fruit trees will attack the fruits. While these insects can be a major nuisance they generally will not kill your tree unless the infestation is repetitive and overwhelming. Typically a tree will bounce back nicely after it has been treatment for chewing insects.
Some of the most persistent tree bugs are the sucking insects. These insects suck the liquid from the trees leaves and twigs. These insects become a massive nuisance to homeowners, as well. They excrete honeydew that gets all over the homeowner’s driveways, vehicles and anything else around or under the tree.
