Living in Rochester, MN, means that, at least for part of the year, you'll be sharing space with a wide variety of insects. Sometimes this simply results in a few ants in the kitchen or some boxelders in the garage. A minor irritant and annoyance to you, but for your trees, there are bugs out there that pose a real and lethal threat.

At Maier Tree and Lawn, we take insect control seriously when it can put your trees at risk. Knowing how to identify signs of resident tree pests is a great way to ensure that your trees get the help they need before the damage becomes irreparable.

Tree pests come in all shapes and sizes, and the damage they are capable of varies just as widely. In some cases, you might just be dealing with a few webbed nests here and there. Tree pests are also capable of boring out trunks, devouring leaves, and infesting neighboring trees with the power of sheer numbers. Professional insect control can either eliminate the issue entirely or, in especially severe cases, give your trees a fighting chance.

You may not always need the eyes of a professional to identify a tree pest problem. If you're lucky, the tree pests will have left some type of obvious evidence of their existence. If you find yourself spotting chewed up leaves, excess webbing, trunk holes, or anything else that indicates your tree might have undesirable visitors, contact insect control specialists immediately. Catching tree pest infestations early is the best way to ensure they don't spread to other nearby trees.

Now that spring has come, your Rochester, MN, trees are likely springing back into action. If you catch sight of a potential tree pest interfering with the spring blooming process, contact insect control experts immediately.
