Although the Emerald Ash Borer pest is currently quarantined in Boulder, we are seeing detrimental activity from the Ash and Lilac Borer all throughout the Front Range. If you suspect that you have a Borer infestation, we have the perfect prescription here at Lawn Doctor. These insects are responsible for millions of dollars in tree damage, but your trees don’t have to become part of that statistic. Our ash borer treatments in Denver can help save your trees--and your budget, too!
Protect Your Trees from These Destructive Pests
Our ash borer treatments can save your trees from destruction, even if they appear to be too far gone to save. Our methods can keep heavily damaged trees from dying, even if they are up to 40% damaged! Unlike other companies who only offer trunk injections, our ash borer treatments in Denver include tree-friendly soil injections, and topical trunk sprays to help nurse your ash trees back to good health.
Our recommended course of action is two-fold. We recommend:
- Annual soil injections to protect your ash trees from infection
- Two protective sprays per year to keep the insects away
What is an Emerald Ash Borer?
An Emerald Ash Borer is a species of beetle that made its way to the Colorado area from Russia, China, Korea, and Japan and is considered the most destructive pest ever found in North America. Before 2002, these insects had never been found in the United States but are now spreading throughout Colorado quickly. These insects can quickly infest an ash tree and can result in the death of ⅓ of a previously healthy adult tree in just two years!
Not only do Ash Borers kill hundreds of millions of ash trees in North America, but they also cost municipalities, property owners, nursery operators and forest product industries hundreds of millions of dollars.
Why Should I Be Concerned?
Ash borers aren’t picky--they attack both white and green ash trees in the Denver area. Did you know that about 1 in 5 urban trees in the state of Colorado are ash trees? That’s a whole lot of food for these voracious beetles to feast on! If you have ash trees in your yard--and you want to keep them--protecting them from these destructive pests is an absolute must!
