Emerald Ash Borer
Emerald Ash Borer Treatment with Lewis Brothers Tree Farm
Many of you have valuable ash trees in your yard. With our Commercial Pesticide Applicator Licence, we can treat your ash tree for Emerald Ash Borer at a reasonable cost. We spray Safari (Dinotefuran) which is a noninvasive, systemic trunk spray for EAB control. This water soluble insecticide is sprayed on the lower five to six feet of the trunk using a common garden sprayer and low pressure. The basal trunk spray offers the advantage of being quick and easy to apply resulting in a lower treatment cost. This application technique does not wound the tree, and the insecticide does not enter the soil. This treatment has been successful in many Eastern and Southeastern States.
