A small green beetle has been attacking ash trees throughout the United States since its arrival in 2002. The Emerald Ash Borer has caused serious problems and even death in ash trees that have been left untreated through the harsh damage of the underside of their bark. With the layers under the bark being destroyed, the tree cannot continue transferring water and nutrients throughout itself.
The Emerald Ash borer is a resilient invasive pest that is currently spreading through St. Louis County at a rate of about 25 miles per year. There are already confirmed cases of these beetles in Ballwin, Chesterfield, Manchester, Town & Country and other local cities and rural areas. Beautiful ash trees throughout Missouri are being targeted by these invaders, but luckily, they can be stopped by professional treatment!
