Can anything be done to stop this borer beetle?
Have we changed the environment and killed off it's (bird?) predators?

We imported the beetle from Asia where it is benign, one suggestion to stop the spread to genetically modify it to make it infertile, but some people aren't happy with this so it's not happening. All we can do uis "fire-fight" by injecting chemicals into already-infected trees ... unless you know different?
