Borers

Zone 85306 | LA added on September 11, 2017 | Answered

Something is boring into fruit trees (zone 9 - AZ - very hot here) and killing branches and then trees. Sap shows first at the entry points and there are many locations on the tree. I have not had this problem before and need help on how to eliminate the problem.
