A HOLISTIC APPROACH
For the purposes of combating the PSHB beetle we suggest that a holistic approach will be essential. To kill the beetles and not simultaneously also eradicate the fungi, or vice versa will be senseless. Equally, we are dealing with a dying tree, or one that is severely damaged and we must do everything possible to help the tree recover, and if at all possible help the tree to self-defend.
Considering the geographic and ecological positioning, typology and prevalence of these trees, the use of excessive toxins is an unlikely solution, and the formulation must as far as possible contain the least possible toxin levels.
