Emerald Ash Borer Research

Dr. Art Evans and WCVE producer Steve Clark discuss some of the efforts of American entomologists in southwestern China and northern Vietnam to better understand the emerald ash borer and its closest relatives on their own turf.

Emerald ash borer is a very serious threat to ash trees growing along city streets and in woodlands across much of North America. You can see other woodboring beetles collected in Vietnam here.

There is also some video footage here of an amazing “porcupine” beetle-watch the wing covers closely!
