How to Stop Stubborn Tree-Killing Insects

Tree-Killing Insect DamageYou love the trees on your property and the beauty they bring to it. However, you hate the insects that attack and damage your trees, but the steps you take to prevent this from happening are futile. What is your solution? How can you stop those stubborn tree-killing insects from destroying your greenery?


At Perfect Cut Tree Service, we know a thing or two about dealing with insects, and we’re happy to provide some information here for the benefit of your trees.


The first thing you’re going to want to do is to recognize if your trees are under attack. You can do this by looking for tell-tale signs of insect damage, such as holes in the bark, dieback of the crown of the tree, and sawdust-like material emanating from cracks in the bark.


Once you’ve determined that, and if you can identify the type of insect, then you can apply the right measures to eliminate them and help your tree. Pests come in three main types: boring, chewing, and sucking. Insecticides and barriers are two of the most common methods for control.


If you don’t have the time or skills to protect your trees, the answer is to hire an arborist in Cincinnati. A certified and experienced arborist has a combination of training and know-how that is very useful in the fight against bugs and borers.


Prevention is the best approach, and the services of an arborist can help with this as well by delivering maintenance and tree care.
