We offer emerald ash borer treatments in Littleton, Golden, Broomfield, CO and surrounding areas.
Our emerald ash borer treatments can both prevent and treat an infestation.
Emerald ash borers (EABs) are invasive pesky beetles that threaten ash trees. They feed off the tree's inner bark, which is responsible for delivering water and nutrients throughout the tree. Almost all ash trees are at risk, including Colorado's autumn purple ash. The best way to avoid EAB damage is to schedule our preventative treatments, however, we can also treat active infestations. These treatments can be applied through a trunk injection or a deep root feeding treatment.
HOA, commercial, and residential properties in Littleton, Golden, Broomfield, CO, and surrounding areas can all benefit from our emerald ash borer treatments.
How do emerald ash borers damage your trees?
Emerald ash borers are invasive beetles that can severely damage your ash trees. The adult EAB will lay its eggs on ash tree bark where they will eventually hatch. The hatched larvae will then tunnel into the tree. Once they settle inside the tree's inner bark, they will feed off of the sapwood and phloem. This damages the tree's ability to deliver essential nutrients and water from the soil to its leaves. The best way to avoid this damage is with annual preventative EAB treatments.
We apply our preventative treatment via trunk injection or deep root feeding.
If you have ash trees on your property, we highly suggest investing in annual preventative treatments. This will protect your ash trees from EAB damage and save you the time, headache, and extra money that you will need to provide damage control if EABs find their way to your ash trees.
When you schedule our preventative treatments, your ash trees will receive either a trunk injection or a deep root feeding.
- Trunk Injection: Trunk injections are considered the most direct and effective method for preventing emerald ash borers. Our team will create a small hole in your ash trees and inject the treatment into their trunks.
- Deep Root Feeding: A deep root feeding treatment is a little bit less invasive than a trunk injection. Our crew will apply the preventative product in the soil near the tree's base, allowing the roots to soak up the treatment and deliver it throughout the tree.
A preventative trunk injection can last for 2 years while deep root feedings can be effective for up to 1 year.
We offer curative treatments for emerald ash borer infestations.
If you skipped the preventative treatments this year, your ash trees will likely show some signs of EAB damage. If you notice any of the following signs, be sure to contact our team immediately so a crew member can visit your property as soon as possible and administer our curative treatments.
Signs that your trees might have an emerald ash borer infestation include:
- Bark splits
- Yellowing and wilting foliage
- D-shaped holes on the trunk where adult EABs emerge
- Increased woodpecker presence on the tree
