It may be a year or two before EAB is in CNY wrecking havoc. Keep an eye out on the ash trees in your yard. According to recent reports, this invasive pest increases in population at least tenfold every year.
The Ash Borer generally has a 1-year life cycle. In the upper Midwest, adult beetles begin emerging in May or early June. Beetle activity peaks between mid June and early July, and continues into August. Beetles probably live for about 3 weeks, although some have survived for more than 6 weeks in the laboratory. Beetles generally are most active during the day, particularly when it is warm and sunny. Most beetles appear to remain in protected locations in bark crevices or on foliage during rain or high winds.
