Emerald Ash Borer Treatments

Emerald Ash Borer Spraying Denver

The emerald ash borer– or EAB for short- is an exotic insect that can be particularly destructive to ash trees of the Fraxinus species. Often this bug is considered to be one of the most destructive tree pests in North America.

When this insect is in the larval stage it feeds underneath the outer bark and can disrupt water and nutrient flow inside the tree. In severe or untreated cases, it can cause the tree to die.

The emerald ash borer has unfortunately found its way down into Littleton, so now is the time to look into protecting your ash trees with our services.

These specific trees make up 15% of Colorado’s urban forest, so it’s imperative that we give them the proper treatment to fight against these borers.

The feeding window for these young insect larvae is from early summer through the fall. Fortunately, there is a way to deal with these nasty critters.
