Actions Indicated

Action

No statutory action against findings. Monitoring of developments elsewhere in Europe where both the beetle and Hymenoscyphus fraxineus are present. Research into secondary pests of ash where H. fraxineus is present.

General Comments

Jewel beetle, native to Europe, which feeds principally on recently dead shoots and branches of ash trees. Unlikely to cause significant impacts if introduced to the UK, but secondary effects on ash trees in areas where H. fraxineus is present in the UK should be investigated. The situation elsewhere in Europe where both the beetle and H. fraxineus are present will be monitored.
