Pest Control/Ash Borer


Hi,I was wondering when did the ash borer insect entered to north america?   

Thank you, Jake

Dear Jake,

My expertise lies in structural insects and rodents - therefore I have no experience with this insect. By searching through Google I found an article that mentions the emerald ash borer was inadvertently introduced into the USA sometime in the 90's.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

My knowledge is in the areas of structural insect or rodent pest problems. I do not know enough about lawn and garden pests to be of any help there...
