Not yet known to be in Massachusetts, this pest has been spotted near the border in New York. The adult insect is of little consequence, but the larvae will feed in the vascular tissue of ash trees, disrupting the trees ability to move water and nutrients.

If you see this insect, contact your arborist, tree warden, or US Forest Service as soon as possible. Preventative treatments may be available for uninfested trees.
