Lace Bugs Treatment in Grapevine, TX.

Lace bugs are very common in North Texas, and tree experts encounter their unsightly damage to trees regularly. The tiny insect predators are no larger than 1/4 inch long and have delicate lace-like wings. Grapevine has an abundance of lush ash, willow, birch and sycamore trees, and numerous other tree varieties that lace bugs target. Lace bugs first appear in spring and multiply at an alarming rate of up to five generations annually. Generally, they are more of an annoyance than a lethal nemesis; however, if left untreated they can eventually kill the tree. When you first observe your tree's health and appearance is declining or notice these small insects, contact a tree care specialist immediately.

Diagnosing Lace Bugs Disease

The experienced plant pathologist performs a detailed examination of the tree and its foliage, then investigates the habitat grounds to quickly complete the tree evaluation report. An infested tree exudes a weakened, ailing appearance with wilted leaves, speckled discolorations and black spots on the underside of foliage. Bark samples are analyzed because lace bugs hide in tree bark crevices to endure winter months. These insects drink the nutritional sap from leaves so all plants will be inspected. The Grapevine Arbor Care professional studies the diagnosis report to determine the immediate treatment required, then customizes the on-going maintenance and care plan necessary to halt the spread and destruction of lace bugs.

Treatment Of Lace Bugs

The desired hosts for lace bug reproduction must be eliminated and all seriously infested trees, infected twigs, and ground debris must be removed immediately by a professional tree service. Insecticides are successful by means of trunk injections and systemic micro injections when administered by an arborist that treats sick trees. Regularly-scheduled pruning by a tree trimming service removes lace bug larvae. Deep root fertilization is the best proactive approach to maintaining the tree's health and vitality and a one year warranty is provided. The best arborist in Grapevine will keep your trees in the peak of health and make certain your outdoor residence is always such that you can be proud of!
