Professional Tree Service
The treatment and prevention methods provided by the Hill Country Pest Control tree division protects against insects, oak wilt, ball moss, and fungus.
Evict Borer Insects From Your Trees
Many insects in the Texas Hill Country benefit our local ecosystem; however, borer insects like termites, carpenter ants, and bees can be harmful to your trees. These insects often leave no external damage signs when making their homes in the tree's trunk, bark, and branches. Our experienced exterminators assess the issues caused by these pests in order to formulate a treatment plan to get rid of termites, carpenter ants, and bees in your trees.
Treating Trees for Fungus and Parasites
While insects might contribute to the decline in your trees' health, other factors can negatively impact your trees, like ball moss and oak wilt. Oak wilt is an infectious fungal disease caused by Bretziella fagacearum, which kills oak trees by disabling the water-conducting system. While there is no cure for oak wilt, we have successfully developed ways of treating oak wilt symptoms. Symptoms of oak wilt include canopy loss, wilting leaves, and fungal mats. To treat this problem, our tree specialists inject a mixture of micronutrients and fungicides to strengthen the tree against diseases and prevent oak wilt symptoms.
Unlike oak wilt, ball moss isn't a fungal disease but a plant that makes their home in the tree's interior canopies seeking low sunlight and high humidity. From this position on the tree, its tendrils encircle the branches, causing a reduction in the branches' circulation. Because ball moss spreads rapidly, it is tough to treat. However, if left untreated, it can cause severe damage to your trees. HCPC's experienced technicians eliminate current ball moss and also mitigate future infestations by ridding your trees of ball moss seeds and spores.
