Gypsy Moth Treatment in Fort Worth, TX.

There are four stages of gypsy moth development. They generally reproduce only one generation per season and go through the egg, caterpillar, cocoon and moth stages. They are general feeders and do not discern in their target hosts, infesting more than 450 varieties of trees and plants that are popular throughout Fort Worth and the surrounding cities. They normally feed together in groups and eat the tree foliage along the edges first and progress towards the center of the leaves. As they progress, the infested tree is stripped and exhibits total foliage loss and signs of a dying tree. They do not destroy a tree in their own right but will cause the tree to become weak and susceptible to other insect infestations and tree diseases. Contact an experienced tree company promptly when you observe these unsightly symptoms. Gypsy Moth Treatment in Fort Worth, TX, call (817) 880-6130 for an Gypsy Moth diagnosing!

Diagnosing Gypsy Moth

Trees that are weak are most susceptible to gypsy moth infestation but these insects will strip the foliage off entire acres of trees when their population is high. They overwinter as eggs and first appear in April. Winds disperse the larvae throughout the outdoor grounds and easily spread these insect pests. Adult moths emerge from cocoons during July Texas heat. When you observe the moths, cocoons or caterpillars it is essential to contact an arborist that treats sick trees. The certified arborist examines the tree and habitat grounds and provides a diagnosis report. The treatment needed to eliminate the insect infestation will be administered by a tree doctor and a one year warranty is provided with any treatment.

Treatment Of Gypsy Moth

Any infested trees and all ground debris should be promptly removed and destroyed by a tree removal company. A tree care specialist should examine your outdoor grounds, lawn furniture, firewood, and even your vehicles and scrape any detected eggs from the outdoor environment. Always wear gloves and protective clothing because gypsy moths have caused allergic skin rashes and respiratory conditions. Pesticides have proven successful when administered by a tree care specialist. The best way to manage gypsy moth infestation is to maintain the health of your trees and residential outdoor environment by having an experienced tree company customize a continual tree health care maintenance plan.
