Emerald Ash Borer Treatment & Control

EAB before and after

Emerald Ash Borers can forever change your neighborhood.  In just 2-4 years these invasive insects can kill your Ash trees. Contact us today to save your trees with our emerald ash borer treatment.

Emerald Ash Borer has been positively identified in New Jersey by the state Departments of Agriculture and Environmental Protection. Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is an exotic beetle that is responsible for the destruction of over 50 million ash trees in the United States.  Early Emerald Ash Borer treatment is essential as most trees die within 2 to 4 years of becoming infested. EAB larvae feed on the inner bark of ash trees, disrupting the tree’s ability to transport water and nutrients. This beetle infests and kills North American ash species including green, white, black and blue ash. Thus, all native ash trees are susceptible. Adult beetles leave distinctive D-shaped exit holes in the outer bark of the branches and the trunk. Signs of infection include tree canopy dieback, yellowing, and browning of leaves.

Our treatment program is designed to minimize Emerald Ash Borer activity, protect your tree(s) and promote plant health.

In the first year of the treatment, we will inject a product called TREE-äge (Emamectin Benzoate) directly into your Ash tree(s).  This application provides your ash tree(s) with two years of control for Emerald Ash Borer.

In year two, a Deep Root Fertilizer will be injected into the soil surrounding the tree(s).  This treatment combines a complete fertilizer with an organic soil conditioner. Together they are designed to increase plant vitality and improve poor soil conditions.

In several intensive studies conducted by Michigan State and Ohio State Universities, researchers discovered that a single injection of emamectin benzoate (TREE-äge™) provided excellent control of EAB for two years, even when EAB densities were high. Moreover, in side-by-side comparisons, emamectin benzoate was more effective than other systemic neonicotinoid products. It is highly recommended to start the Emerald Ash Borer treatment prior to infestation to protect your trees from this pest.
