Insects Pests & Disease Management

Tree Insects, Pests & Disease Management

Signs of disease:

  • Fungal growth, such as mushrooms or white/gray patches
  • Sudden increase of blackened or dead shoots
  • Unexplained wilting, yellowing or browning of leaves
  • Soft, easy-to-crumble wood
  • Rust spots and lesions on fruits

Some of the most common diseases are leaf spot disease, canker disease, mold and mildew diseases, and rot of the root system, trunk or heart.

Signs of insect or pest damage:

  • Foliage that is riddled with holes
  • Sudden onset of dead branches
  • The presence of bundles of insect eggs
  • Vertical splits in bark
  • Insect emergence holes
  • Larvae found beneath bark

Aphids, emerald ash borers, black turpentine beetles, Asian longhorn beetles and termites are just a few pests that can cause serious damage to your trees.

Although the above are common signs of underlying pest or disease problems, the best way to diagnose your tree for sure is to contact Sesmas Tree & Lawn Care and have one of our experts perform a professional analysis of your property and plant life.

Unfortunately, pest and insect treatment is not as simple as spraying your trees down with bug spray, and many substances can prove to be toxic to the tree itself. Likewise, many diseases are caused by fungi and must be specially treated by a professional. While a lot of these diseases can be severe enough to kill the tree, even those that are not life-threatening certainly post a threat to the attractiveness of your plant life, and can spread to other trees if proper care is not taken.

In order to keep your trees healthy, they need to be regularly maintained and observed for signs of damage or illness. If you believe your trees are suffering from insects, pests or disease, contact Sesmas Tree & Lawn Care today and we'll have a professional out to your home as soon as possible.
