“Got Beetles? Watch Out! The Emerald Ash Borer is Active in Minnesota!

What’s an Emerald Ash Borer?

This invasive beetle species lives in and feeds on ash trees only. They nibble on the inner bark, disrupting the tree’s ability to move nutrients from the roots to the leaves. Adult beetles burrow into the bark to lay eggs that emerge each spring, hatching more beetles to do more damage.

The Emerald Ash Borer is about a half-inch long and has a bright, iridescent green color. If you see these beetles on YOUR ash trees, call Nature’s Touch Tree Service RIGHT AWAY!!

There is a huge infestation plaguing the Minneapolis area! Look out for these pests and the woodpeckers that eat their larvae. If your ash trees look sickly or have woodpecker holes, they may still be in danger!
