Austin Chewer Management Specialists

Have you noticed missing leaf tissue or skeletonized leaves on your trees? If so, your trees may be infested with chewers. Left untreated, chewers can be very detrimental to the health and overall beauty of your trees. These pests nest in groups and are larger than most other tree pests. Because of this, they are very easy to spot. If you find chewers crawling about, contact the Austin chewer removal specialists Hamlin Tree Care, Inc today at (512) 484-0252 so we can fight the infestation and get your trees looking beautiful again.

Do I Need A Tree Care Specialist?

There are several reasons why hiring a tree care specialist is important. First and foremost, we value the safety of our clients. Pest management, tree pruning, and tree removal can be dangerous endeavors to try to do on your own. Weakened branches may snap unexpectedly, causing fall damage. The specialists at Hamlin Tree Care, Inc are certified arborists with years of expertise in treating damaged trees. We have the necessary equipment to scale and treat trees while remaining out of harm’s way.

The second reason to hire a tree specialist has to do with the knowledge necessary to address tree pest infestations. Our team is equipped with extensive knowledge of the trees, insects, and soil specific to Austin. Our knowledge and experience allow us to remove pests and prune trees without causing any extra stress to your trees in the process. When clients try to remove tree pests without this knowledge, they tend to over-prune or use chemicals that end up causing their trees a great deal of harm in the long run. Safety and experience aside, our service works alongside you, so that pests are eliminated without interrupting your daily life. Don’t spend an entire weekend in the front yard; Hamlin Tree Care, Inc has you covered.

We also hold to a code of ethics to ensure customer satisfaction. For the protection of everyone involved, our team is fully bonded and insured. Hiring uninsured contractors for tree care projects is never a good idea.

What Are Chewers?

Chewers are pests that feed on the leaves and fruit of trees. Chewers are the largest type of tree pest and often build nests on trees. There are four main types of chewers found in the Austin area.

The first type of Chewer is known as a bagworm. They feed mainly on Arborvitae, Juniper, Cypress, and Oak trees. In addition to feeding on leaves, these pests harvest tree bark and leaves to make nests which hang from branches. The added weight of these nests can cause branches quite a bit of added stress, causing them to snap and fall.

Another common Austin chewer is the tent caterpillar. They form large, webbed nests on tree trunks that resemble a thick spider web. These chewers feed on most fruit trees and cause the most damage during the spring.

Webworms are most commonly found during the fall. They form web-like nests that span several feet across the canopy of trees. Infestations can spread quickly and cause heavy defoliage.

The last type of chewer common to the Austin area is the Juniper budworm. They live in tubes formed at the end of branches. Through feeding, they cause patches of Juniper leaves to brown.

Whatever kind of chewer infestation you are experiencing, the arborists at Hamlin Tree Care, Inc can take care of it.
