Gypsy moths are an annoying insect problem that is common in Fort Worth and DFW. They infest over 450 tree and plant varieties and target stressed, weak trees. The insect pests overwinter, first appear in April and adult moths emerge during hot Texas summer weather. Their larvae is easily spread by winds and they reproduce rapidly. Although gypsy moths do not destroy a tree by their own accord, they weaken a tree tremendously and make it vulnerable to tree diseases and other insect infestations. Contact an experienced tree company promptly when your tree manifests severe foliage loss or is exhibiting signs of a sick tree.
Diagnosing Gypsy Moth
Diagnostic procedures are swiftly performed by the ISA certified arborist. Visible indication of gypsy moth invasion is stripped foliage, as these moths can strip acres of trees. Habitat grounds are investigated for the presence of caterpillars, cocoons and moths. Firewood, lawn furniture and even vehicles are examined for gypsy moth eggs. The diagnosis report is completed and the arborist that treats sick trees determines the specific treatment necessary to halt gypsy moth destruction. A one year warranty is provided with the treatment. The experienced tree company customizes a continual tree and plant health care program to ensure that your residential grounds remain beautiful and your trees are always healthy and free from insect infestation.
Gypsy Moth Treatment and Solutions
Severely infested trees and all ground debris must be removed and destroyed immediately by a professional tree removal company. All eggs must be scraped from vehicles, lawn furniture, firewood and any decorative objects on the property. Wear protective clothing and gloves, as these moths cause respiratory problems and skin rashes. Pesticide treatments are successful when scheduled and administered by a tree doctor. Deep root fertilization is an important treatment to maintain the health of your trees.
