Little Bugger, Big Problem

This an image that is credited to the U.S.D.A. It reveals a forest in East Texas that is suffering from the Southern Pine Bark Beetle.
When trees are stressed they become susceptible to attack. This has become a problem in our urban areas as well. In the last couple of years, Houston has lost thousands of pines. This becomes most noticeable after times of drought, a tree will practically die over night it seems.
If you notice yellowing needles on your trees an arborist must be called in and immediate action must be taken by spraying and deep root feeding. Most of all, keep your trees healthy and watered during drought conditions and this can be avoided.
