Fort Worth and the north Texas area has become one of the most popular wine regions in the United States. Unfortunately, grape phylloxera are microscopic insects that inflict lethal destruction upon our grape vines and are killing them quickly. They multiply rapidly hidden in infected soil and invade the root system, preventing the vine from dispersing water and nutrients throughout its structure. Infected vines exhibit premature leaf loss and an overall unhealthy appearance. There is no cure for this deadly nemesis; therefore, contact an experienced tree company immediately when your vines appear to be declining!
Diagnosing Grape Phylloxera
Official diagnostic procedures must be expedited. The experienced plant pathologist will examine the vines for visual verification. Soil is laboratory-tested, as infected soil spreads easily via winds and rain, digging and walking throughout the vineyard. Root grafts are analyzed for further confirmation. A diagnosis report is provided and the arbor care professional determines the immediate treatment necessary. A customized plan to halt phylloxera spread is presented to ensure that your grape vines are not destroyed.
