Yes, it is possible. Most likey, you will see the 1/2″ metallic green adult beetles on your ash tree leaves first. You may also notice holes the leaves, “D”-shaped rings or holes in the bark of the tree, more woodpeckers than usual, and shedding bark. These are all indications that you have the EAB. We recommend not waiting until you have them to have your trees inspected. The larvae live under the bark and can do damage before you see the adults. At Liscombe Tree our estimates are free and we offer a preventable injectable program that can protect your trees for up to 2 years.
