We Get To The Root Of Tree Healthcare Problems

Most wood boring insects get attracted to stressed and vulnerable trees in your landscape. Often they are called secondary invaders, as they attack the trees and plants that have lost their strength and vigor.

The infestation of wood borers goes unnoticed until trees and plants show external signs of wreckage and injuries. They create irregular holes in host plants. Hence, people often confuse the infestation with woodpecker damage. So, professional tree healthcare assessment is crucial before offering accurate treatment.

About Boring Insects

Wood-boring beetles, popularly known as woodworms or powderpost beetles, are commonly found all across the United States. Adult wood-boring insects are called long-horned beetles, as their antennae are quite longer than their body part.

They are known for the structural damage they create to woods, coming second to termites. They are difficult to control once the infestation begins.

Boring beetles play an essential role in nature by breaking down wood to be consumed by plants. Likewise, if the infestation is left unchecked, boring beetles can damage the strength of plants and trees. Moreover, the tree borers can severely affect the quality of lumber, thus making your trees susceptible to various tree diseases. Also, they attract weevils, moths, and caterpillars to invade. So, the control of tree diseases and pests along with accurate tree boring insects treatment is crucial.

Symptoms Of Boring Insects

  • Powdered Wood: Larvae tend to eat away the wood, leaving behind frass – an early sign of infestation.
  • Holes and Tunnels: Exit holes and tunnels in wooden frames and furnishings are another sign. Boring insects create round, oval, semicircular, or random holes in the plant.
  • Clicking Sounds: Audible clicking sounds when eating away the wood.
  • Blistered or Stained Wood: Caused by larvae tunneling below the wooden surface.
  • They produce a sawdust-like frass
  • Create a tunnel in the inner bark layer called cambium that transports water and nutrition. The lack of tree nutrition will cause cracks in barks and limbs.
  • Partial girdling reduces plant growth and vigor.
