Insect Control, River City Tree Service St Louis Missouri

insect control

Insect control is a major problem in some areas. Although most insects are beneficial, some inflict damage or even kill trees.

Experience and training are key to identifying specific harmful insects. Choose a tree service with a certified arborist on staff to receive appropriate treatment.

There are 3 basic ways insects harm trees:

  • CHEWING insects eat twigs, buds, flowers or leaves.
  • SUCKING insects feed on branches, leaves, flowers or fruit.
  • BORING insects tunnel beneath the bark to lay eggs or feed.

Insects are more prevalent in diseased trees. They can also carry diseases from tree to tree. If you think you have an insect problem, a certified arborist can help identify pests and prescribe treatment.

As usual, prevention is the best medicine. A regular maintenance program, including disease and insect control, will keep trees healthy.

Communicative and professional. We’ve used them twice and plan to next time we need tree work. They are thorough, quick and also clean up after themselves!

I've used various tree services throughout the years with differing results. Well I will tell you, River City Tree Service is by far the best tree service. Steve was always available morning, afternoon, and evening to answer questions and explain the process. He always made the time for me. The support staff were very polite and responsive as well. The work they did was well done. I will use them again in the future.

Steve and his crew did a great job of reasonably promising and overdelivering. This was a job of removing two very large trees at the top of a steep incline in my back yard with a retaining wall and new landscaping at risk of damage. He gave us a bid, an expected time of about 10 days to 2 weeks to get us on the schedule, and an expected time of 3 hours to get the job done after he and his crew arrived. His price was reasonable and he stuck to it, he was able to get us on his schedule about a week faster than he expected, and his crew was able to get the job done even faster than he expected they would. Steve is very professional, River City's prices are very reasonable, they cleaned up nicely after the job was complete and there was literally no confusion or complication whatsoever. We were very impressed and will keep Steve and River City Tree Service in our phones for future jobs and referrals to friends. Thank you Steve for making this so painless and so simple.

We needed a very large branch removed from our neighbors tree that hung over our yard. I was kept informed about everything that was going to happen. We had power wires that needed to be 'dropped' so I was told we had to wait for Ameren. The entire job was completed and cleaned up in 2 hours before Ameren even arrived. The whole operation was a ballet of safe and efficient workers. The workers were very friendly and respectful of our property and our needs. I would recommend this company to anyone!
