Battling Bronze Birch Borers

Upon discovering bronze birch borers in the crowns of dying paper birch trees last summer we began efforts to control the beetles. We applied insecticidal tree implants and ground coverings to reduce water stress. We searched for relationships between environmental conditions and the degree of damage to the trees. The relevance of the findings to future actions is discussed in this report.
