Pests are a hazard to your lawn and landscapes. One specific pest that is making a name for itself right now is the EMERALD ASH BORER (EAB). This little green beetle originated in Russia and Asia and is commonly found on streets, woodlots and forests across southern Canada and the U.S.
The Emerald Ash Borer is usually found on all species of Ash trees. When the fully grown EAB rise, they can swarm solid trees in very little time. When they do, they make short work of destroying a tree, and causing significant damage. So if you notice your Ash trees are looking unhealthy and distressed it’s best to take immediate action to save the trees and preserve the beauty of your lawn.

One of the best things you can do is to take preventative measures to protect your Ash trees. Lawn Care Experts, Certified Arborists, and Landscape Specialists are your best resource for helping to create a preventative program for you. They also have access to stronger and more targeted measures than a typical homeowner.
The best thing you can do to guard against the Emerald Ash Borer is to call your Local Lawn Care Experts and ask them to inspect your property. They will provide the best course of action for your particular situation.
