It may have been a long, harsh winter, but the Emerald Ash Borer is a survivor. Not every lawn care company provides tree care too, but Buffalo Lawn and Landscape does. First a review of the Emerald Ash Borer.

What is the Ash Borer?

  • The Emerald Ash Borer is a beetle from Asia and Eastern Russian and so in America it is an invasive species.
  • It was discovered in America in Michigan of 2002.
  • It’s host is, as the name implies Ash trees: green ash, white ash and blue ash.
  • The larvae are what cause the damage as they eat tunnels under the back as they grow and cut off nutrients to the tree.
  • A single Ash Beetle can lay up between 40-70 and 200 eggs, depending on how long they live.
  • Once the egg hatches it eats its way into the tree where it lives for between 400-5– and 1000 days on the tree, contributing to its death.
  • The larvae transform into the mature beetle inside the tree and bores it’s way out, leaving a hole.
  • The beetle lives on Ash trees for just one week before breeding and starting the cycle over.
  • It is now found in 22 states.
  • If sprayed right after the eggs hatch, there is a good chance of stopping a full blown infection spreading to your tree.
