Fir worm

Asked August 16, 2019, 6:05 PM EDT

I have a few very tall fir trees and have noticed a pattern of bark missing and sap running. I saw little holes and pushed a small wire into the hole and pulled out what may have been a worm as it was a little squished. My firs are starting to lean as well. Several cedars look fine, thou I have spotted a small amount of sap running on a couple. Pine tree was saved due to my Dad's fight against the pine beetle. I don't think I'll be able to save them.
