Cottonwood Borer

Cottonwood Borer Treatment in Arlington, TX.

Difficult to miss due to their large size of nearly 1 1/2 inches, the cottonwood beetle is the largest beetle species in the United States and exceptionally common in Arlington. Tree care specialists frequently encounter their destruction because these beetles primarily target cottonwood trees but also invade poplars and willows. Cottonwood borers hide in the tree's root structure and first appear in spring. These beetles cause more destruction below ground than what is visible above and tend to target trees that are already in ill health. Left untreated, their damage will result in the tree's death so contact a tree expert immediately when your tree appears to be ailing or weakened. Cottonwood Borer Treatment in Arlington, TX, call

Diagnosing Cottonwood Borer Tree Disease

The diagnosis report will be completed quickly by the experienced plant pathologist. Habitat grounds are closely inspected for cottonwood borer beetles and areas that have compacted soil which stresses roots. Holes in the tree and sawdust-like shavings confirm beetle occupation. The root structure and vascular system of the tree will be laboratory tested for cottonwood borer larvae. Once confirmed, the tree doctor will state the immediate treatment required and the Arlington certified arborist will develop the personalized maintenance and care plan necessary to prevent further destruction by cottonwood borers.

Treatment Of Cottonwood Borer

Maintaining healthy trees by deep root fertilization and scheduled watering supports the tree's roots so it doesn't topple over from wind gusts, thus destroying life and property. All trees that exhibit an abundance of holes must be promptly removed by a tree service and infested branches must be pruned. Insecticide applications scheduled and administered by a certified arborist are effective on mildly infested trees.
