Pecan Phylloxera Treatment in Fort Worth, TX.

These dreaded insect pests target pecan trees and destroy the annual nut production if the insect infestation is not treated immediately. They resemble aphids in appearance and cause the infested tree to exhibit premature defoliation, branches falling, dead branches and reduced shoot growth. Pecan phylloxera can reproduce as many as several generations per season. Infested trees will have wart-like bumps, known as galls by tree care specialists, on their foliage. Although pecan phylloxera rarely destroys the tree, they will further weaken the tree and cause it to become susceptible to other destructive pathogens. Once the galls have appeared it is too late to treat the tree for that season; therefore, contact an experienced tree company immediately if you observe the above-mentioned symptoms or your tree is exhibiting signs of a sick tree.

Diagnosing Pecan Phylloxera

As is typical of many tree insect problems and tree diseases, pecan phylloxera target trees that are stressed and weak. Visible indication of their infestation occurs between April and June when Texas weather is warming. They overwinter and feed upon newly-developed tree foliage tissue. Trees that have manifested galls the previous year are more susceptible to advanced infestation and destruction. Proactive measures are always best to combat these damaging insect pests. Contact an arborist that treats sick trees and schedule a diagnostic evaluation. The experienced plant pathologist will examine the tree and environmental grounds and detail a tree evaluation report. A tree doctor will administer the necessary treatment and provide a one year warranty.
