Emerald Ash Borer

The emerald ash borer, also known by the acronym EAB, is a green buprestid or jewel beetle native to north-eastern Asia that feeds on ash species. Females lay eggs in bark crevices on ash trees, and larvae feed underneath the bark of ash trees to emerge as adults in one to two years. Wikipedia

Scientific name: Agrilus planipennis

Order: Coleoptera

Family: Buprestidae

Phylum: Arthropoda

Kingdom: Animalia

Effects of emerald ash borer may be similar to those of chestnut blight or Dutch elm disease. As ash trees in forests die, gaps form in the forest canopy, allowing light to reach understory vegetation. ... Native herbaceous plants may be impacted by the loss of the ash trees and the responses of other vegetation
