Signs that your Trees have been Infested by Diseases or Insects

Thankfully, when a tree has been invaded by tree pests and diseases, certain symptoms show up. These symptoms help us know that something is wrong and that immediate action needs to be taken to prevent further tree injury or save the life of the tree. Here are some of the common symptoms to look out for.

  • Damage to the leaves: Once the leaves start to show signs of discoloration, or they appear twisted, or there are a lot of holes in them, then it's time to take action.
  • Decay: Open wounds and decay are an invitation to pests and diseases. The earlier they are handled, the better.
  • Excess Deadwood: The presence of deadwood is pretty normal for trees, what is abnormal however is when the number of deadwood becomes so much, then you know there is a problem.
  • The appearance of holes: Holes are most likely created by insects. These holes prevent the flow of nutrients and minerals within the body of the tree.

For the most part, insects that harm trees can be classified into sucking (aphids, thrips, leafhoppers), boring (carpenter bee, beetles), and chewing (Beetles, caterpillars) insects.
