- Millions of trees are being killed by the exotic beetle known as the Emerald Ash Borer. We can help you protect and save your trees from this harmful creature.
The Emerald Ash Borer is a beetle native to eastern Asia, where it is not considered a significant pest since it is typically found only in low densities. In North America, however, it is an invasive species which feeds on and destroys ash trees (the U.S. contains up to 21 species of ash). Local governments are concerned about the destruction of ash trees, and are actively working to educate the public about the threat and reduce the destruction.
The beetles deposit eggs between bark crevices, flakes, or cracks. After hatching, the larvae chew through the bark where they feed and develop. This process harms the trees, eventually causing them to die. All ash trees are expected to die in an infested area within 10 years if preventative measures are not taken. Kansans and Midwesterners in general are currently battling this harmful creature.
Look for these signs to identify possible Emerald Ash Borer infestation.
Trees and surrounding populations can be saved if infestations are managed early on.
