Toronto braces for annual emergence of ash borer; Toronto, Ontario, Canada; 4/15/09

Toronto's war with beetle resumes next month National Post - Toronto,Ontario,Canada
Toronto’s war with the Emerald Ash Borer resumes next month, when the bug will come out of the wood work, literally, for mating season.
The metallic green beetle, which has killed more than one million trees in southwestern Ontario, was discovered in Toronto in 2007 and has since infested 6% of the city’s street trees — about 27,000 ashes. It is expected to demolish the city’s ash trees in the next 10 years.
