Emerald Ash Borer
Protection and Treatment
Do you have ash trees? Has the invasive Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) entered your neighborhood? This invasive, shiny green beetle, about the size of a cooked grain of rice, has destroyed millions of ash trees in the United States since it was first discovered in 2002. Wisconsin counties currently quarantined for EAB include Milwaukee, Waukesha, Washington, Ozaukee, Kenosha and Racine.
The Emerald Ash Borer leaves behind evidence that it was there.
The EAB wood borer aggressively attacks and kills all species of ash. Because there are more than 700 million ash trees in Wisconsin, it’s important to identify, manage and destroy infestations before they become widespread. New state regulations are in effect.
Symptoms of infested ash trees include dieback of leaves in the upper tree canopy, vertical splits in the bark, D-shaped exit holes on the trunk, S-shaped tunnels under the bark, water sprouts at the trunk base, and heavy woodpecker activity.
