Bellinger’s is Lafayette’s #1 choice for Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) Treatment / Protection.
Emerald Ash Borer (Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire) is an invasive insect in the United States. It has killed millions of ash trees since it was first discovered in 2002 in Southeast Michigan. As a result, in Tippecanoe County, Indiana an integrated pest management program will be critical to the health and survival of the Ash species through 2020. For detailed information from leading research groups on this subject, we recommend you visit emeraldashborer.info. Bellinger’s is the tree care leader in the Greater Lafayette area. We have been providing protective insecticide options for owners of Ash trees since 2007. Because of our experience using the latest technologies and our knowledge, we will help you make an informed decision regarding the care of your Ash.
At Bellinger’s we have a three fold approach to helping our customers plan for the future as it relates to EAB. To begin, we assess the health and value of your ash tree to determine if your tree is a good candidate for annual or semi-annual insecticide treatments. Secondly, we can help determine if inter-planting of an alternative tree species in the landscape is an effective use of your resources for a future with EAB. A third option is immediate removal and replanting of a new tree from our extensive tree nursery. So you have options and we will tailor a custom solution for you.
Insecticides can effectively protect ash trees from EAB, today and in the future. It is said that once a county has been quarantined, that EAB has likely been present for 2-3 years before the quarantine is put into effect. Current maps of known EAB populations can be found at the link that follows: emeraldashborer.info . Let Bellinger’s help you make an informed decision for the future of your landscape
