sapsucker holes

Asked July 30, 2016, 11:57 AM EDT

Is there a spray I can buy to put on the tree to stop this or should I call a professional to treat the tree.
It would be be very difficult to wrap the whole tree with burlap

No, I don't believe there is an effective product available for this purpose. I am including a link below to information on this type of problem, the sapsucker information is at the bottom. Note that one strategy is to let them have one tree to avoid injury to others, which may be healthier. http://www.birds.cornell.edu/wp_about/control.html
