There was a very large limb extending out over their 2-story house. This limb was unhealthy and infested with boring beetles posing a danger of falling and destroying the home.
After removal, the large opening of exposed hardwood is very attractive to boring beetles and grub worms. To prevent this, we sprayed the exposed area with insecticide and afterwards, sprayed pruning seal over the entire area. Pruning seal is a waterproofing spray that will prevent the exposed wood from rotting.
