Insect pests can and do injure the Palo Verde, and other desert trees. These pests can damage leaves, twigs, branches, trunks, and roots.>

The most dangerous is the root borer. The Palo Verde Borers are root borers and are rarely seen above ground. Adults are 4" to 6" long with antennae nearly as long as their bodies.
Adults are active July through October. Immature larvae feed on roots of Mexican Palo Verde and other non-native trees. Larvae spend up to three years underground feeding on roots and over a 7-to-10-year period Palo Verde Borers will gradually kill a tree.Most adult borer females lay eggs from spring through summer.
Another class of Insect that usually attacks stressed or damaged desert trees like the Palo Verde are Flatheaded Borers
Flatheaded Borers most commonly invade sunburned or otherwise damaged areas along the trunks and branches of trees. Olive-gray adults lay eggs under the bark of damaged areas. The larvae are cream colored and legless and mature to 1 1/2" long. The maturing larvae feed on dead wood and make small tunnels filled with what appears to be sawdust. This damage occurs beneath the bark and can go unnoticed for long periods
Another type of insects is the insects that attack the foliage of desert trees. These include: Acacia whitefly, aphids, and psyllids.
Acacia White Fly appears dark gray or black because of a large dark spot on the body. These insects reproduce rapidly and cause significant leaf loss.
Aphids are a common and wide spread plant pest that can attack desert species. Aphids are restricted to the succulent new growth on the tips of twigs of desert trees.
Aphids reproduce rapidly and can quickly kill small twigs and deposit honey dew (a clear, sticky material excreted by aphids that blackens leaves and twigs).
Psyllids feed by scraping at the undersides of leaves giving the leaves a blotchy, yellowing appearance. Psyllids suck plant juices and produce honeydew, sometimes in crystallized form, on which blackish sooty mold grows. Abundant psyllid infestation can cause defoliate and reduce plant growth.
You can get a handle on controlling the insects that are damaged your Palo Verde trees by treating them yearly with Bio Advanced Tree And Shrub.
This product comes in both liquid and granular, I believe the granular is the safest to use. You can get the Bio Advanced Tree And Shrub from Home Depot.
It's very important to read the cautions on the label of this product and I would recommend that you keep your kids and dog’s inside until the poison is completely washed into the soil, and the soil is dry.
The Instructions will tell you how much you need to buy and be sure to wear gloves.
Be careful when you use the Bio Advanced Tree And Shrub.
Also there are medicines that I can inject directly into the tree that will speed up the healing process.
We now understand -in part- how a trees immune system works.
Every cell of every plant contains enzymes that dissolve fungus, bacteria, and viruses. These enzymes are the same as the enzymes in our spit that dissolves meat.
Normally a tree has a strong immune system, but when the reserve energy of a tree becomes depleted due to damaged leaves, incorrect watering, or improper pruning, the immune system suffers. Under normal circumstances, once these issues are resolved, and if the tree survives, everything will go back to normal in two to four years.
There are medicines that I can use that will speed up the healing process.
