How to get rid of Tree Insects

Our professional arborists can identify an insect and determine if it's harmful to the tree, beneficial, or has no effect.Some insects are beneficial because they control populations of harmful insects through predation or parasitism, so you want to avoid any treatments that take out the good bugs with the bad. If the insect is indeed harmful, we see how harmful it is and if it is worth treating. Most professional arborists operate on the philosophy of treating only when the environmental/economic risk from the insect has reached a certain threshold.

Many bugs are benign. For instance, the presence of carpenter ants indicates decayed wood is present; they only are seen in dead, decaying sections of the tree. On the other hand, termites pose a threat to trees and are best treated by a professional.
