Emerald Ash Borer
How did it get to America ?
It was brought to America by firewood or other wood products containing Ash tree bark.
The Emerald Ash Borer feeds on ash trees and kills the branches, eventually killing and/or damaging the whole tree. The larvae are placed under the ash tree bark, once hatched, they feed on the bark.
What will we do stop them ?
One way we're trying to eliminate EAB's is by injecting Ash trees with chemicals. People say it is the most effective way because the chemicals stay in the tree even after along time after the injection.
