How Does Gold Spotted Oak Borer Prevention Protect your Trees?
Arborwell’s ISA certified arborists can clear the infestation
The adult GSOB is about 10mm; a bullet-shaped beetle with six golden yellow spots on its dark green forewings. The mature larvae are white, legless, slender and about 18mm in length with two pincher-like spines at the tip of the abdomen.
They damage oak trees causing…
- Crown thinning and grey or brown coloring
- Red or black staining in dime-sized to half foot sections
- Chipped outer bark from woodpeckers feeding on larvae
- Small D-shaped exit holes where the GSOB pupate and emerge from the tree
- Blistering and oozing on the surface of the tree
- Twig and branch die-back
- Thinning of foliage and premature leaf loss
- Early oak demise
