The emerald ash borer is a half-inch long metallic green beetle with the scientific name Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire. Larvae of this beetle feed under the bark of ash trees.How fast do ash borers spread?
Normal flight spread of the EAB is between one-half to two miles a year so natural spread tends to be relatively slow. Unfortunately, movement of infested ash wood can result in jumps of hundreds of miles. Firewood has been a major means of transporting EAB, especially by hunters and campers.
