emerald ash borerMany Dayton, OH, residents love enjoying big, healthy, vibrant trees on their properties. Not only do these trees look great and provide shade, but they also add curb appeal that younger saplings just can’t match. (Watch any home-buying reality TV show, and you’ll find buyers in search of a property with mature trees.) However, what many Ohio homeowners don’t know is that without proper care, their sturdy trees may be susceptible to tree-destroying pests. Emerald ash borers are exotic beetles that like to prey on many Ohio trees, including ones in the Dayton area. Often, these borers—while no bigger than a penny—set up camp in the bark of your tree and cause damage before you even know it. While you might notice the warning signs, like splitting bark or woodpecker damage, you may not realize what’s happening until it’s too late. Your best line of defense against these insects is actually preventative tree care. Emerald ash borer treatment (also called EAB treatment) is a specialized service we offer at Lawn Plus LLC.
