The emerald ash borer is an invasive insect that is causing problems in over 30 U.S. states and parts of Canada. Learn about the insect, how it is destroying ash trees and why this is a huge problem.
You can read the most recent news on how it’s already in Dallas, moving its way to Fort Worth and other surrounding areas here.
SYMPTOMS TO LOOK FOR
1) Woodpecker pecking. Woodpeckers love to eat EAB larvae. “Because of their pecking, they chip off the bark, creating a blonding effect, and make holes. Although woodpeckers eat other insects, their presence on an ash tree is definitely a red flag for EAB infestations.”
2) 1/8th inch sized D-shaped exit holes, which is a sure symptom of EAB. “Unfortunately, they are easy to overlook because of their size. Also, EAB starts infesting trees at the top of the canopy and then works its way down. Unfortunately, you won’t see these emergence holes until a tree has been infested for a while.”
3) S-shaped galleries found under the bark. “If you see these galleries, that is sure evidence of EAB. But because they are hidden, they will not be seen unless the bark is removed. “
