Read the article "Wasp may be key to saving ash trees" to find out more about this large stingless wasp, Cerceris fumipennis, which is a natural predator of the invasive species called emerald ash borer, Agrilus planipennis. The emerald ash borer is attacking ash trees in many areas across the United States and the invasive pest is spreading. Read the article written by Andrew Chave in AuburnPub.Com.
Remember to do your part to keep Emerald ash borer from spreading by always using local firewood and other untreated wood products.
