  • Kingdom- Animalia

  • Phylum- arthropoda

Arrival of the beetle

  • Discovered in southeastern Michigan, in 2002

  • Theoretically, its from Asia.

  • It can be found in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri, New York, Ohio, Ontario, Quebec, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin


What does it do to the people?

  • Mainly, these beetles attack ash trees, and trees produce oxygen for us to breathe and trees are a major natural resource

  • Humans also use the wood for lumber and fire wood


How about the ecosystem?

  • A MAJOR loss of ash trees

  • The only organisms affected are humans, and Ash trees.


The food web


Mission Accomplished

  • Its reason for success is that there are so many neighboring states that produce and possess Ash trees.


The future plan

  • They are using pesticides, conducting quarantines, and major studies of this beetle are taking place.
