Medium_img_0527 Hi I have a problem with some sort of infestation of my plane trees

My plane trees have a brown web-looking thing with sawdust. The tree bark is being eroded.

Answer: Hi Sally,

Thank you for contacting Yates regarding your plane tree, the picture is not focused but looks like possible borer attack, peel of the web and check possible entry hole and remove any invisible borers if you can. Unfortunately, we haven’t got any products registered against this pest yet. I would suggest watering and feeding regularly ( Try Dynamic lifter) to maintain general health of the tree.

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
Louise
