Southern Pine Bark Beetle
I am a Tree Doctor and have been in business for over 20 years. I have not
seen a boring insect that was good for any tree. Over the years, many
people have asked me to save their trees from pine bark beetles. Most people
just do not know what to do. Below is a good starting point.
First let's talk about pine beetles in general. There are over 600 species
of pine bark beetles in the United States. It is estimated they do over 1 billion
dollars damage annually. The species that do the most damage are in the ips's
family. They are able to fly. They are attracted to sick and weak trees. They
are able and will kill a perfectly healthy pine tree. Pine bark beetles are able to
kill every pine on your property. In fact, there is plenty of documented evidence
that they are able to devaste entire forests. Many species of pine bark beetles
are able to breed faster than roaches. Does this sound serious enough for you?
Yes, it is possible to save a pine tree from the southern pine bark beetle. There
are several steps that should be taken. The first step is to hire a qualified
tree doctor to look at your trees. Arborists and Tree Doctors are not the
same. In the State of Texas, most arborists have less than two weeks of
classroom training. Tree Doctors spend all of their time diagnosing
diseases and insect problems. The average arborist spend most of their time
cutting,pruning, and removing trees. Hiring someone that works with
diseases on a regular daily basis is important. Many books used by tree
doctors are hundreds of pages in length. They are distinctly two different
areas of expertise.
Early insect detection by a qualified tree doctor is very important. In fact,
early detection and treatment is essential to saving a tree. The second
step is to reduce the stresses on a tree. Keeping trees out of stress and
in good vigor is important for a pine trees. A weakened tree actually can attract
pine bark beetles. A good tree doctor can determine the stresses that are affecting
your trees. Tree stress reduction is vital for the health of all trees. The
benefits are better resistance to disease and insects.
Third, the proper treating method is essential; spraying trees for pine bark beetles
will not work. The pine bark beetles are under the bark. If you can't get the
chemical to the insect you are trying to control, it won't work. The second
problem with chemical spraying is, chemicals will not last very long out doors.
Chemical half-lives are dramatically shorten because of weather conditions.
Sun and rain will reduce how long the insecticides last to only a few days at
best. Pine bark beetles can be attacking the tree again in under two weeks.
Tree Tops Pest Control is the sole local distributor for a product that is injected
into the tree. Once the chemical is inside the tree, sunlight and rain have very
little effect? The chemical is systemic and moves thru the entire tree, even
under the bark. In order for this product to be effective, the chemical should be
applied in the early stages of infestation. Trees, properly diagnosed and treated
have a 99% success rate over a five-year period of time. The customer
must follow Tree Tops regular maintenance recommendations.

owner will only make a choice of either paying to remove the trees or paying
a tree doctor to save the trees. Paying the tree doctor will generally save
the homewner over 60% in savings.
