Adult phylloxera first appears in April and their obvious presence along with galls are firm confirmation. Because they weaken and disfigure trees, it is essential the grounds have sufficient drainage and soil that has not been infected by other pathogens. The tree doctor will advise the immediate treatment necessary and personalize a custom continual maintenance regimen to prevent further spread of pecan phylloxera infestation.
