Effects on people
Effects on people

  • Severely damages trees, such as maples, elms, chestnuts, willows, mulberries, and black locusts

  • They eat the insides of these trees, thus, in time, killing the trees

  • This bad for people, because killing the trees reduces the oxygen


Effects on ecosystems
Effects on Ecosystems

  • Since they kill trees, it reduces oxygen, and it destroys homes of other organisms



Reasons for success
Reasons for Success

  • It is successful in its new habitat because there are plenty of trees in the ecosystem

  • It’s also successful because there are no natural predators in its new habitat


Issu es for the future
Issues for the Future

  • There are no attempts to kill the beetle since there are no pesticides that can kill it

  • A trade-off can be if we can’t find a pesticide that can kill the beetle they would end up destroying more trees
