FC: The Emerald Ash Borer | The Emerald Ash Borer by Miss Wagner | Sample Invasive Species Project

1: The Emerald Ash Borer, EAB, is a wood-boring beetle.

2: The emerald ash borer is making its way eastward through PA!

3: The EAB beetle was first detected in Pennsylvania in the summer of 2007 in Butler County. Now it can be found in 21 other counties. | The invasive beetle is native to China and eastern Asia. EAB likely arrived in North America in wooden shipping materials. It was first detected in July 2002 in southeastern Michigan,

4: In the larval stage of the wood-boring EAB, it destroys the Ash tree's water and nutrient cells under the bark, which stops the tree from growing.

5: Damage to Ash tree from EAB. The left side of the tree is dying.

6: In the United States, more than 7.5 billion ash trees are currently at risk of being invaded by the emerald ash borer.

7: "Nearly 114 million board feet (33,000 m) of ash saw timber with a value of $25.1 billion is grown in the eastern United States each year. " Wikipedia (2011 June 29). Environmental and economic impact. Retrieved from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emerald_ash_borer In the United States, over 40 million ash trees have been killed or are currently dying, which is having an economic impact.

8: A quarantine has been issued limiting the movement of all ash materials (including logs, branches, wood chips, and firewood) to keep the damage from spreading.

9: Purple sticky traps are also being used on Ash trees to collect adult EAB for studies.

10: People can attempt to stop the spread of EAB by only using local firewood. Do not bring foreign firewood into the state!
