Question

Maybe it'll go under Exotics, since half of them are types of fungi .

Didn't they create a pesticide already? Well even so, you never know... what if the beetles themselves get immune to the pesticides, and suddenly there's an epidemic going on among the Elm trees? It's probably unlikely, but I don't know...

I guess the resistant Elms might hold them off... though what happens if the fungi mutates? Would the Elms be doomed by then?

There are pesticides, as I recall there are still cases of the disease, I think it is at manageable levels so the Elms won't go extinct.
