The exponential growth pattern of the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) makes managing this pest particularly challenging. Research shows that a single female beetle at the start of a new infestation will be responsible for growing the local beetle population exponentially by a factor of 50. What does this mean? That same single female beetle will have created a population of 1 trillion beetles 10 years later. The next year: 50 trillion!
The result of this growth pattern sees Ash tree mortality stay very low for the first 3-4 years, which then explodes seemingly at once. After 11 years, virtually all non-treated local Ash trees will die.
This growth pattern, with relatively low beetle numbers in the first few years, often makes it difficult to discover new infestations. Once a new infestation is discovered, it is possible that the area's beetle presence may, in reality, be in year 3 or 4 (see graph below).
