These tiny insect pests are prevalent in the United States and extremely common throughout Fort Worth. Lace bugs target many of the popular trees and plants in the DFW metroplex including, but not limited to, willow, sycamore, hickory, poplar, ash, and birch. They reproduce at a swift pace and can rapidly overtake your residential outdoor environment. There are over 2000 species of lace bugs and are easily recognized by their filmy, translucent wings. The insect-infested tree will exhibit signs of a sick tree, wilted foliage and speckled discolorations on its leaves.

Diagnosing Lace Bugs

Lace bugs initially target trees and plants that are stressed, weak and vulnerable. They siphon the nutritional fluids from foliage and prevent the tree from transporting nutrients throughout its vascular system. These insect pests overwinter in bark crevices of weak trees until they visibly appear in the spring. When you are questioning the health of your declining tree, it is always best to contact arbor care professional and request an official diagnosis. Diagnostic procedures are swift for our Fort Worth tree doctors and our ISA certified arborist, as they have extensive experience in combating lace bugs throughout our area. The tree and outdoor grounds will be examined by our ISA certified arborist and a detailed tree evaluation report will be provided. The necessary treatment will be administered by our arborist that treats sick trees.

Treatment Of Lace Bugs

Severely infested trees, branches falling, ground debris and dead branches must be immediately removed and destroyed by a professional tree removal company. Regularly-scheduled pruning of infected branches by a tree pruning service using sanitized tools reduced lace bug larvae and decreases the insect infestation. Insecticide applications by means of trunk injections and systemic micro injections administered by a tree care specialist are successful and a one year warranty is provided with any treatment. Maintaining the health of your trees by annual deep root fertilization and enacting a continual tree and plant health care plan is the best defense against destructive tree diseases and insect problems.
