The trees and shrubs in the Spokane area aren’t immune from insect attacks. Unfortunately, we lose many beautiful trees in the area due to insects such as the bark beetles that are attacking our forests. These particular insects are less of a threat to our suburban landscaping, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of other threats from insects like tussock moths and tree borers. The first step to taking care of an insect problem on your trees and shrubs is to watch for the warning signs that your trees have been infested.
Signs of Insect Infestation in Trees
- The top of your tree starts to die
- Branches are easily broken by the wind
- Sawdust-like material in the cracks of the bark
- Loss of leaves well before the autumn season
- Exit holes in the trunk or branches
