(wgvu) - The emerald ash borer continues to spread
in Michigan.
The state Agriculture Department says the pest has been found in
the western part of the state's Upper Peninsula.
It previously had been reported in an eastern Upper Peninsula
county and in parts of the Lower Peninsula.
The latest confirmation of the bug that destroys ash trees comes
from Houghton County.
The emerald ash borer is a beetle native to Asia detected in
southeast Michigan in 2002.
The pest is blamed for the death or damage of millions of ash
trees in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland,
Missouri, Virginia, Wisconsin and Ontario, Canada.
