Major Pest Alerts:
Emerald Ash Borer - EAB
EAB is a current and real threat to our native Ash trees. The U.S. Government expects 100% mortality rate in untreated Ash trees. There is no hope in saving our forest Ash trees because off the unrealistic cost of treatment.
EAB is preventable on a "tree by tree basis". So if you have key Ash trees on your property it can be controlled with a systemic injection. It is imperative for the injection to take place prior to infestation for it to be successful.
Asian Longhorned Beetle - ALB
ALB has made head lines in Chicago, New York, New Jersey and most recently Massachusetts. If you have had the miss fortune of living in these areas you know all to well how devastating this insect can be. For those who don't know, this is what to expect when it comes to your area.
Bronze Birch Borer - "BBB"
Much like it's close cousin "EAB", BBB is very host specific, attacking only a few varieties of White Birch. This pest also feeds on the vascular system off the host tree so it is imperative to have a systemic control in place prior to infestation.
Hemlock Wooly Adelgid - HWA
This small cottony insect is the Hemlocks worst pest. Though it is easily controlled, if left unchecked can defoliate a Hemlock in one season. This insect which is light and fluffy easily disperses in the wind and on the wings of birds.
