The Emerald Ash Borer is an invasive beetle that was first found in Michigan in 2002. This beetle only attacks Ash trees. Our Certified Arborist can determine if you have Ash trees in your yard at no cost to you. We can also provide cost effective solutions for dealing with this pest. The adult beetle does little harm to the tree. The larvae of the beetle cause damage by tunneling under the bark and disrupting the flow of water and nutrients in the tree.
An Ash tree will show signs of an invasion by thinning of the crown. That is, there will be fewer leaves than normal. Also, “D” shaped exit wounds on the trunk and epicormic water sprouts at the base of the trunk may be visible.
It has been proven to be more effective to pre-treat trees that are not yet infested than to try to treat after infestation has occurred. This is because the “plumbing” of the tree may be so damaged that no matter what product is used, the tree might not be able to take up the pesticide. Changes in the tree’s appearance may be so subtle that the tree may fall into the unsalvageable state before this beetle has been detected.
There are options for the effective control of Emerald Ash Borer.
