Ash Tree Attack Boring Insects

 

Watering nonnative trees in Mesa AZ

 

Whiteflies in Temp AZ

 

The massive mile high dust storm we had in 2013, has spread mites and other insects throughout the valley like I've never seen. This increase in insects and the record-breaking heat of 2011 has dangerously stressed many tree species, particularly the ash trees.

Ash Trees are susceptible to wood boring insects. Common symptoms are, branch dieback, and thinning canopies. A symptom common with ash trees infested by carpenter worms and other ash borers is bark shredded off by woodpeckers searching for the larvae.
To make matters worse the Ash Fly is now in the valley and I have seen it in many trees including Ash and Citrus.

I have personally seen this pest completely defoliate large Ash Trees to learn more please watch the video on this page.and download Help For Sick Ash Trees on this page.


What to do:
1 Increase watering immediately. Notice how well large Ash Trees do in lawns that are green all year long. See Watering Non-Native Trees on this page.


2 Starting immediately - treat your Ash Trees yearly with Bio Advanced Tree and Shrub. Treat your tree annually as the deep borers are hard to kill. You can get Bio Advanced Tree and Shrub at Home Depot.


3 Have us treat your Ash Trees with medicines that will accelerate the healing process from the damage done from the micro pathogens carried by insects. Good Luck Warner.
