Pitch Mass Borer

Deadly Pitch Mass Borers Exterminated by Giroud

Pitch Mass Borers are lethal insects that infest Spruce, Fir, and Pine trees. These little caterpillar-like creatures burrow deep into the heartwood to feed on sap. As these borers hijack the tree’s nutrient-rich sap, the tree will weaken and eventually die.

But fear not! Follow these 3 easy steps to destroy an infestation:

  1. Call Giroud if you see a reddish brown ball of sap forming on your tree.
  2. Manually kill the Pitch Mass Borer larva burrowed in the tree.
  3. Keep your tree fertilized so it can maintain its health as it heals.

Giroud Tree and Lawn can help prevent or eliminate Pitch Mass Borer infestations. In the video below, tree climbers Dan Rombold and Jack Morvin, show our step by step process to eliminate these wood boring insects. But the first step towards healthy trees starts with you. Call Giroud today, and we’ll get you on the right path to saving your trees from these lethal insects.
