While on our BYGL Conference Call earlier today, I received the monthly Emerald Ash Borer email update which includes a map that includes the latest changes of EAB detections in North America.  A shout out to Douglas Bopp, GIS Support Northeast Area with USDA APHIS PPQ who regularly sends this information out to communicate the latest information. 


Changes and/or additions included in this map since the July 1, 2016 map are as follows: The addition of initial county detections in: Vanderburgh County, IN; Harrison, Van Buren and Washington Counties, IA; Lincoln Parish, LA; Middlesex County, MA; Davidson, Forsyth, Swain and Yancey Counties, NC; Lehigh County, PA; and Unicoi and White Counties, TN. Added to the list of counties quarantined by their state: Union Parish, LA; White County, TN; and Harrison County, TX. Additions to the Federal EAB quarantine since the July 1 map: Union Parish, LA; Wabasha County, MN; Cass, Douglas, Dodge, Sarpy and Washington Counties, NE; Marion County, TN and Harrison County, TX.
