Invasive Species to watch for this summer

By: A. Pasma, 2014-03-13 11:09:54

Over the next few days I will update you on invasive species to watch for this Summer. The first is probably familiar to most of you, the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) While there has been talk that the deep freeze we went through this winter may have put an end to the EAB, there is no evidence of this at this time. The Emerald Ash Borer lay their eggs in the bark of Ash trees in early summer. When the larvae hatch, they chew through the outer bark, and feed on the inner bark. They create tunnels in the inner bark which can interrupt the flow of water and nutrients in the tree. An infested tree can be killed in months. There is a product, TreeAzin that can be injected into your Ash tree in an effort to ward of the EAB. If you treat your tree in time, and on schedule, you should be able to keep your Ash tree for the duration of its natural life. Contact us for more information if you are concerned you have an Ash tree on your property, and you live in the Oakville, Burlington, or Mississauga areas.
