Borers leave a telltale trail of sawdust and tiny holes as they drill through a tree’s roots, trunk and branches. Infested trees should be treated with a long lasting, systemic pesticide, fertilized and watered regularly.

These videos show how to identify and control Pitch Mass Borers and Emerald Ash Borer.

Of all the borers that attack trees in Philadelphia, Montgomery County PA and Bucks County, Emerald Ash Borer is the most dangerous. A 100% fatal pest, treatment is the only proven way to protect Ash trees from Emerald Ash Borer.
