Summary of Specifications:
Injection of ash trees with the insecticide Tree-age (or equivalent) to control Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) Bay County is seeking to enter into a one-year contract for the treatment of ash trees that are infested with the invasive beetle, Emerald Ash Borer (Agrilus planipennis). Treatment will be done using the injected systemic insecticide Tree-Age (or equivalent), a micro-encapsulated liquid formulation of 4% Emamectin Benzoate specifically labeled for trunk injection to control Emerald Ash Borer in ash species (Fraxinus spp.) The ash trees will be divided into four (4) separate treatment blocks. The treatment blocks will contain roughly the same number of trees and will be based in a given geographic area. Maps and tree inventory for each treatment block can be found in Addendum A. Bidders are encouraged to bid on any or all of the treatment blocks. The total number of trees treated will be determined by the County after review of the trees for health prior to the beginning of the treatment period. All trees are located on public land in open lawn type areas.
