BBB Treatment

You can take steps to protect your tree. We currently offer insecticide technology, Xytect, to protect your tree from BBB and other insects, including the birch leafminer. With our recommended soil treatments your tree will have year long protection.   Treat important trees first: specimen trees, trees shading your home, patio trees, etc. These trees should be healthy and vigorous. Research trials have shown systemic insecticide treatments are highly effective at protecting birch trees. Once treatments begin, you will need to treat your tree yearly to maintain protection.
