Emerald Ash Borer (EAB)
Effective and Professional EAB Treatment
Tens of millions of ash trees are dead. Tens of millions destroyed thanks to a small Asian beetle known as the Emerald Ash Borer. The Emerald Ash Borer has become a well-known and devastating pest to ash trees in 34 states and will continue to kill these beautiful trees without control measures set in place. Monster Tree Service can provide preventative treatments for healthy trees and can help alleviate a tree of an active infestation within certain ranges.
Thankfully, there are both signs that reveal the presence of the EAB and treatments that keep it from killing your ash trees. These treatments are scientifically-sound and application methods are environmentally friendly. Our expert arborists at Monster Tree Service can protect your trees from these predatory insects, so contact us today.
How Do I Know If My Tree Has an Emerald Ash Borer Infestation?
The signs of an Emerald Ash Borer infestation are clear, but homeowners have to be vigilant. Emerald Ash Borer live and feed underneath the outer bark layer, choking the tree of its vital nutrients and water. Regularly check your bark for most of the signs, but also take a step back. Look at your tallest branches. Are a large number of them dying? Are there “bald spots” where leaves have stopped growing?
The signs of an Emerald Ash Borer infestation include:
- D-shaped holes in the outer bark
- Excessive “flecking” from woodpeckers
- Dead branches in the upper canopy
- Loss of leaves in the topmost branches
Be sure to keep an eye out for the D-shaped holes. These holes are how Emerald Ash Borer larvae (the deadly stage of the EAB for ash trees) eventually emerge as adult beetles. Woodpecker flecking is also an indicator that there are excessive amounts of insects in your tree. The birds themselves are not an issue—it’s what they’re finding that makes them such a troubling sign.
