Emerald City of Ohio

The emerald ash borer beetle (Agrilus planipennis) has expanded its non-native range, and the ash trees are quaking like aspen. According to this article from WCMH NBC-4 News, larvae were found about two weeks ago in ash trees growing in a suburb of Toledo, Ohio. This is the first sign of the Asian beetle in that state; it has previously been restricted to Michigan and Ontario, Canada.
