In Albany, there has been a big number of Arbovitaes dying due to a bug boring into them. I have lived on my property since 2002 and our backyard is surrounded by large Arbovitae's. I contacted Oregon dept of ag and they sent out someone to see if it was the BORING BEETLE they were looking for, but it turned out to be a different type of bug boring in and killing the plants. They said they didn't have funding for our type of pest, and suggested I contact you guys? Please help me to know what to do. I have already lost two of the plants that are approx. 20+ feet tall. The Mennonite Village took all theirs out, they all turned brown and dying just like mine. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 541-740-1923 I am the manager at Corvallis Feed & seed and just needing advice.
