Since being first identified in the U.S. in 2002, the emerald ash borer has killed millions of ash trees in North America. Our emerald ash borer treatments target this invasive and damage-causing pest to prevent them from causing further damage. We inject insecticide into the trunk of the tree and over time, our treatment flows into the rest of the tree. Once the infestation is controlled, we can work with you to assess the damage and formulate a curative plan to nurse the affected trees back to health. Our EAB treatments also target the larvae as they burrow under the bark of the tree, breaking the life cycle so they never become mating adult beetles. For long-term protection of your ash trees, ongoing treatments are the only way to prevent further damage and ultimately, preserve your trees.
We offer our EAB treatments to properties in Des Moines, West Des Moines, Ankeny, and surrounding areas of Iowa. Call (515) 289-2020 to schedule our emerald ash borer control treatments to keep your ash trees safe from this invasive pest!
When it comes to protecting your trees from emerald ash borer damage, there really is only one option, treating the tree to protect it from EAB damage. Our trunk injections use a special insecticide that flows into the fibers of the tree and is designed to eradicate any EABs that are present. We create a small hole in the trunk of the tree to administer our insecticide. Trunk injections are an effective method of preventing EAB damage to your trees, and because the insecticide is injected into the tree, these treatments are safe to use in urban areas and around waterways.
Trunk injections can last up to two years, but will need to be repeated for long-term protection from EABs.
Emerald ash borers feed on the inner bark of the tree. This reduces the tree's ability to deliver water and nutrients throughout the tree. EAB larvae can spend up to two years munching away under the bark of the tree during this stage of the EAB's life-cycle, so damage can be both extensive and unnoticed before an infestation is identified. Our team of professionals can assess any damage these insects have caused and administer treatments to help nurse the tree back to health.
If left unchecked, an EAB infestation can kill an ash tree in 2-3 years. Emerald ash borer damage is done when the insect is in its larval stage and feeding under the bark of the tree. Our injections target these invasive and damaging pests when they are in this stage by killing the larvae and breaking the life cycle so they can't mature to mating adults. Ongoing treatments are the only way to prevent further damage and ultimately, protect your trees.
