This little horror bores into the bark and lays its eggs. It is not the beetle itself that destroys the tree, but the fungus that grows and lines the walls of the tunnels. This fungus impacts the ‘circulatory’ system of the tree interfering with the uptake of water and the distribution of nutrients. It withers and dies.
Worse, it has no favourites… 200 hundred species of trees are in danger, but the most severely affected species are: Boxelder Maple – Chinese Maple – London Plane – Liquid Amber and Paperbark Acacia.

In store you’ll find Powerful Systemic Fungicides to keep your trees in the greatest shape.
These you dilute and spray onto the trunk of tree. It absorbs and the tree will take it through its own system.
There’s also Efekto Insecticide Granules Plus - 500g for R91.08.
Here, you scatter the granules around the base and roots of the tree and water in well. The granules are dissolved into the soil and the tree takes up the muti through its own system.
It’s a small price to pay to keep your trees.
