Originally from Asia, the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is an invasive metallic green beetle that causes major harm. It was first discovered in Michigan in 2002 and likely made its entrance into the US via wooden crates holding products from Asia. Since 2002, EAB has spread to 20 states and killed tens of millions of trees throughout the US. Yes, you read that right – tens of millions of trees are gone because of EAB. This pest feeds on the transportation tissue of ash trees, which causes death by preventing the ash tree from absorbing water and nutrients. Unfortunately, EAB has no natural predators here in the US.
The good news is that we can help save your ash trees. We offer a highly effective treatment for EAB using an organic compound applied directly into the trunk of the tree. It can be applied after the pest has attacked, but it is most effective when applied before an attack. If you have ash trees on your property, now is the time to start thinking about preventative treatments.
