  • Protect Your Ash Trees!

  • Life Cycle of Emerald Ash Borer
    1. The larvae live under the bark of the tree, feeding on the vascular
      cambium.
    2. The larval feeding leaves ‘galleries’ under the bark that interrupt
      nutrient flow to the canopy and eventually kill the tree.
    3. The adult is a small, metallic green beetle only 10-15 mm in
      length. The adults typically emerge around June, leaving
      D-shaped exit holes in the bark. The adults feed briefly in the
      tree canopy before reproducing and laying eggs in the twigs
      and branches.
    4. The larvae will start feeding in the branches at the top of the tree
      and work their way down. The first symptom in an infested tree
      is dieback in the tree canopy.

    Symptoms of Emerald Ash Borer

    • Dieback in tree canopy
    • New sprouts forming from the tree’s base
    • “D” shaped exit holes
    • Woodpecker damage

    How Treatment Works

    • Treatments keep your ash trees safe for 2 years.
    • We inject insecticide directly into the trunk of the tree.
    • Treatments are done when the trees are actively growing so they effectively take in the product.
