Because so many trees in the Lakewood, CO, area are ash trees of one variety or another, property owners need to know how much of a threat the emerald ash borer can be. At Schulhoff Tree & Lawn Care, Inc., our emerald ash borer treatment options are available to ensure that your trees stay healthy and strong.
A Dangerous Threat
Emerald ash borers are dangerous because they cause structural damage to important parts of a tree’s vascular system. The adult deposits its eggs between the crevices in the bark of a tree, and the newly hatched larvae live inside the tree, chewing it away, and then emerge as adults by boring even more holes through the bark.
When the bark is damaged, a tree is vulnerable to other pest infestations and fungal infections, which makes emerald ash borer prevention crucial.
Schulhoff Tree & Lawn Care, Inc., treats emerald ash borer infestations with an insecticide created specifically for these invasive insects. This treatment can be injected into the trunk or soil or sprayed onto the tree, depending on the severity of the infestation.
