The emerald ash borer is a green beetle native to Asia and Eastern Russia. Outside its native region, the emerald ash borer (also referred to as EAB) is an invasive species and is highly destructive to ash trees in its introduced range. The emerald ash borer was first discovered in America in June 2002 in Michigan. It was accidentally brought to the North America in ash wood used in shipping materials.

 

 

 

 

EAB Life Cycle
The adult emerald ash borer emerges May – July and the female lays numerous eggs in bark crevices and between layers of bark. eab adult on leaf for sandy

The eggs hatch in 7-10 days into larvae which bore into the tree where they chew the inner bark and phloem creating winding galleries as they feed. This cuts off the flow of water and nutrients in the tree, thereby causing the tree’s dieback and death.
