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.
