Birch Tree Borer Treatments
There is an epidemic of Bronze wing birch borer in our area which is decimating the birch tree population.
We do not use a soil drench to treat for this pest as the chemical used is a neonicotinoid and has been linked to several negative things such as autism and the collapse of bee colonies.
We use an injection that goes right into the tree called TreeAge which is derived from a naturally occurring compound which interrupts one of the life cycles of the Borer and is relatively benign to other organisms.
This treatment can keep your trees safe for 2 years at a time.
If we catch the infestation soon enough, the dead parts can be removed and the injection can save the tree, or we can treat the tree before it is attacked.
