Have you ever heard of the emerald ash borer? This tiny beetle might not seem like much, but it's actually a highly destructive pest that poses a serious threat to ash trees. The emerald ash borer (EAB) is native to Asia. However, it was unknown in North America until its discovery in southeast Michigan in 2002.
Since then, the emerald ash borer has spread rapidly and has now been detected in 36 states and the District of Columbia. That's almost the entire United States! Infestations have been found in states from as far north as Maine and as far south as Louisiana. The beetle's spread has been helped by human activities such as the transport of infested firewood and nursery stock.
The damage caused by the EAB is significant. The beetle larvae burrow into the bark and feed on the living tissue underneath, disrupting the tree's ability to transport nutrients and water. This can lead to branch dieback, crown thinning, and, ultimately, the death of the tree. It's estimated that the EAB has killed tens of millions of ash trees in the United States alone.
To combat this destructive pest, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) works with First Choice Tree Care to detect, control, and prevent the spread of the EAB. This is done through a combination of methods, such as surveying for infested trees, quarantining areas where the beetle is present, and using insecticides to control populations. APHIS also provides information and resources to help individuals and communities take action to protect their ash trees.
So next time you see an ash tree, remember the threat posed by the emerald ash borer. By staying vigilant and taking action, we can work together to protect these important trees and preserve our forests for generations to come.
