Oak Wilt, Red Oaks Trees

It is crucial to know the difference between contamination from Red Oaks and Live Oaks trees.

Oak Wilt can lead to death in red oaks. Oak wilt can also be spread by soil contamination. To spread the disease, it will typically require a host tree. Many insects are attracted to red oaks that emit fungal spores. The photo shows the sap-feeding, necidulid honey beetle.

The fungus can spread to trees if the beetle infects a tree. It is best to prune trees in the winter, so that it does not happen. This allows the tree to dry the areas and seal them before the beatles come back in spring or summer.

Oak Wilt can also be transmitted through the human body. The contaminated wood can be cut off and placed in areas that are populated with red oak. Before you cut wood, make sure it is thoroughly examined before you transport it.
