Small Bug…Big Treat.

How much do you know about bark beetles?  Have you noticed thinning leaves, tiny holes in the trunks of ash trees and leafy shoots growing from their bases?  There are roughly 131 million ash trees in the State of Illinois.  What a feast for tiny beetles!  Initially, the culprits may look like tiny, innocent grasshoppers.

Despite their innocent appearance, the emerald ash borer, native to Asia, has already destroyed  20 million trees in nearby Midwest states and led to the quarantine of about 15,000 square miles of land since it was first identified in the United States early in this century, according to the United States Department of Agriculture.

A Complete Pest Solution does not want you to imagine your property without trees!  That is what could happen if the emerald ash borer and other such tree destroyers are not checked at the curb before they destroy your trees.  A Complete Pest Solution is Chicagoland’s bug prevention and removal expert.  Give them a call at (630) 464-1542.
