Our world is increasing in connectivity, more and more every day. These connections bring a lot of positives, but they also come with… well, some unwelcome guests, namely, the Asian Longhorn Beetle.
We’ve already discussed the Emerald Ash Borer, a pest that came to the United States and slowly made its way north to us. As its name suggests, this invasive species has a special appetite reserved for ash trees. While we fight to preserve the ash trees we still have, simple things like not planting more of this species of tree can prevent the spread of the beetle. When the next species comes, though, we might not be as lucky.
