Think you don’t have some silent assassins deep inside your luscious landscape? Think again.
This root bore larvae can kill your tree from the inside out, leaving you with a dead, unstable tree, waiting to fall when the next big wind comes through town.
This year in particular, we’ve seen a bit of an increase in them since last year or the year before. They love to make themselves a new home underneath a cozy Palo Verde, where they can feast on the roots.
Although it’s a pest that many people never stop to consider, it is wise to look for signs that Palo Verde Root Borer Larvae might have inhabited your lawn, and are slowly ruining the strength and integrity of your trees.
So how do you determine if you have root borers near your Palo Verde?
One strong sign is the decline in health of one or more individual branches. If you see a whole branch dying, it’s a good indication that there is a problem in the root system below, and the limb is not receiving any nutrients due to that damage. Root borers will eat chunks of the roots and slowly reduce the tree’s ability to continue feeding the grow healthily.
A weak tree is a dangerous tree. Once it falls on your house or car, you’ll be in much bigger trouble than you ever thought you’d be.
