Except for general cultural practices that improve tree vigor, little can be done to control most bark beetles beneath bark once trees have been attacked. Water your trees once a week and feed with a 10-10-10 fertilizer, broadcast beneath the canopy of each tree, in amounts as listed on the fertilizer label. Good luck with your trees.
