Bark being eaten off pecan trees
Q: I have limbs on my pecan trees that the bark is being eaten off and the small limbs are dying. What is causing it and what can I do?
A: You have squirrels. They will do that on many trees. Sometimes it is because they are hungry, most times it is simply to be chewing. They will also do that to the eves and trim on houses. All you can do is trap them and move them to another area miles away from you so they will not come back. But be warned, they breed like rats and new ones will soon move in and you may have to start over again.
