These bugs are eating away the bark on the trunk. Any ideas on how to get rid of them?

While it is really dependent on the type of bug you are seeing, it may help to treat the tree with neem oil on a weekly basis for about a month. This should take care of whatever insect pest your tree has as well as any fungal issues that may pop up too.
