Invasive beetle on the march across Europe

1 post in this topic

An invasive species of beetle that has killed tens of millions of ash trees in North America could "spread unhindered" across Europe, researchers have warned.

The emerald ash borer, first recorded in the Moscow area in 2007, has become established in surrounding broadleaved woodlands, they observed.

The pest, which is expected to cost the US economy $10bn, has spread up to 25 miles each year, the team estimated.
