Italian Cypress, Bug Attack!
We have a bunch of Italian Cypress that started getting dried several months back. After months of trying to figure out what was wrong, someone told me their own trees had Pacific Beetle roaches! Ugh! Then an arborist told me the same thing. They just suggested keeping the area free of dried up sprigs. So I took another step and decided to spread Triazicide Spectracide (package states it kills beetle roaches) under the trees and on my entire lawn area in March. It doesn't seem to have done much kill off the little buggers though so I did another spread recently. The tree in the worst condition is probably round 35% dried.
I'd LOVE to get rid of these bug as well as prevent my trees from getting worst! If anyone has any experience with this or has more suggestions I can try!
