Insect Treatment and Prevention
There are many boring insects attracted to various trees, especially trees already under stress. Boring insects lay their eggs under the tree bark and their larvae feed on the interior of the tree until mature and then bore their way out through the bark as adults to start the cycle over again. The boring leaves telltale signs - exit holes. The feeding under the bark causes the real damage and will kill your tree over time. Emerald Ash Borer is probably the most familiar but there are other borers specific to Oaks, Birch, Pines and more.
