    You say the ones you saw liked the Indian Rosewood - any damage to those trees? We had Emerald Ash Borers last year here in Ohio. Very destructive. The adults aren't really the culprits, it's the larvae that they lay in the interior of the tree that's the problem. Sounds similar to our problem just from your very limited description.
