Ash borer treatment is a major topic of concern for environmental activists throughout the country. From the initial outbreak in Michigan from the early part of the 2000s, ash borer control has quickly become one of the hotter topics when it comes to natural preservation of the ash trees throughout America. From Michigan to North Carolina, ash borer treatment is a topic for most communities and city planning committees that have a high density of ash trees in their area. The Emerald Ash Borer is a beetle that is responsible for the destruction and rising decline in ash trees throughout the American Midwest, South, and Northeast.
Ash borer treatment is part of a large environmental effort that spans across dozens of states and two Canadian provinces. Emerald ash borer treatment is becoming such a priority that zoning committees and EPA related agencies are beginning to invest hundreds of thousands of dollars into Ash Borer treatment. It is also interesting to know that, despite what many think, adult Emerald Ash Borer control is not as detrimental to the health of ash trees as the treatment of the larvae. Ash Borer treatment is designed to stop the growth of future Emerald Ash Borers because the larva and eggs feed on the insides of the trees, cutting off their ability to transport water and nutrients throughout the tree. This type of destruction is a lot like gangrene disease where limbs cannot receive blood because of damaged and dead arteries. Many environmental activists promote Ash Borer treatment by discouraging the transport of wood from one region to another.
