The Columbia Shuswap Invasive Species Society is sounding the alarm after the emerald ash borer — a destructive invasive insect which kills ash trees — was found for the first time west of the Rocky Mountains in the United States.

According to a news release from the non-profit, the beetle, which is native to eastern Asia, was first discovered in Michigan two decades ago.
