The Emerald Ash Borer, EAB for short (Agrilus planipennis) is a devastating, wood‐boring insect that attacks and kills Ash trees (Fraxinus spp.).This borer insect comes from Asia where it has natural predators to control it. Over here, in the USA it does not. It is here in Texas as discovered by the Texas Forest Service. This bug has killed millions of Ash trees already.
So if you own any of the 16 native Ash tree species, schedule a preventative treatment with us as soon as possible. We work with you to keep your trees healthy, and use systemic insecticides that are not sprayed onto trees. The preventative treatment lasts one year. There are two year Emerald Ash Borer treatment options as well.
