Emerald Ash BorerEAB is a devastating insect killing Ash trees and has recently been discovered in Ulster County. Once the tree is infested, it will need to be destroyed. Treatments will prevent infestations. HVPHC uses the product Imidacloprid, which is a systemic insecticide, either as a soil injection or as a micro-injection into the tree to help protect the tree from the insect. If you have Ash trees on your property, HVPHC highly recommends you have your trees treated to avoid a costly removal. This insect has already caused over 40 million Ash trees in Michigan and Ohio to be destroyed. Approximately 15% of all trees in New York are Ash trees and if this insect is not stopped, the Ash trees will become extinct.
