Protect Your Trees From Tree Borers

Ash Borer Treatment

Ash Borer treatment couldn’t be more important for tree owners in southeast Michigan. If you notice a somewhat large sap ball on the outside of one or more of your trees, there is a good probability that your trees are experiencing an insect infestation that is living within and feeding off the bark of your trees.

About the Emerald Ash Borer

Common to southeast Michigan is the Emerald ash borer, an exotic beetle that was discovered near Detroit in the summer of 2002. The adult beetles like eat the actual foliage, but causing very little damage and impact to the overall health of the tree itself. However, the problem is that the larvae of these beetles can cause severe damage to the tree, for while it feeds on the inner bark, by doing so, they compromise the ability of the tree to carry nutrients and water from its roots to the rest of the tree. If these infestations are not diagnosed or treated immediately, the results could lead to the death of the tree plus an infestation spread to the other trees on your property! So not only do you lose your trees but then you could potentially incur costs as a direct result of having to remove the dying trees, exterminating these pests altogether, and then having to replace the trees. This catastrophe could be avoided altogether by hiring a service for ash borer removal.
