Invasive Species Environment's Economic Impacts Threats and How You Can Help Michigan is also well known for housing many species not native to the state. These not-natural species are nuisances, or threats, to the ecosystem in which it inhabits. One species garnering widespread attention across the midwest is the emerald ash borer. The emerald ash borer
was introduced to the U.S. in 2002
has caused increased border checking and screening of lumber at the Canadian-American border
has killed millions of ash trees in southern Michigan and across the midwest The mammals are the most widely recognized. They are the
Prairie vole. EMERALD ASH BORER Introduced to U.S. in 2002
Has led to numerous border restrictions and screening.
Has killed more than 10 million ash trees in southern Michigan alone. An invasive species common in Michigan and very prevalent in our area is garlic mustard. Biennial herb
Dominates habitat and can displace all other plants within 10 years
