What is Bronze Birch Borer?
The adult bronze birch borer (Agrilus anxius) is a slender, dark bronze beetle, with a radiant green iridescence underneath the wing. This native insect is a serious pest of any stressed birch tree (Betula species), but is most commonly found attacking the ornamental White Birch that are so common in our neighborhoods. If not treated properly, the bronze birch borer will continue to lay eggs and feed on the vascular tissue of the Birch tree until the tree can no longer sustain the damage and succumbs to the invader.
