That pesky little metallic green bug is beginning to make a comeback. We're talking about the Emerald Ash Borer, which the state says is responsible for killing millions of trees since it was first discovered in southeast Michigan in July of 2002.

Gary King, Deputy Director of the state's Emerald Ash Borer Program says the beetle should be emerging soon and we should know what we're in store for this summer in the next three or four weeks.

The Emerald Ash Borer has been contained to 21 counties in southeast Michigan and some other outer areas as well.
