Do you have an ash tree?
The emerald ash borer is an invasive insect that infests and kills all ash species regardless of the tree’s overall health. This insect is native to Asia and was first discovered in the U.S. in Michigan in 2002. Since its discovery in Michigan, it has spread to other parts of the U.S. and into parts of Canada.
However, in Minnesota this insect wasn’t discovered until 2009 in St. Paul. Since its discovery in St. Paul, this insect has been discovered in multiple cities scattered across the eastern portion of the state, with a large concentration in the Twin Cities metro area.
What Can You Expect from Rainbow Treecare?
The emerald ash borer is not a household insect or your common outdoor insect such as ticks, wasps, and mosquitos. Although this insect has the ability to fly, the likelihood of you ever encountering this insect while going about your business in your home or around yard is very unlikely.
