Updated Emerald Ash Borer Map Distributed by USDA APHIS

Published on

While the emerald ash borer (EAB) may seem like old news in Ohio, USDA APHIS continues to provide a monthly updated map tracking the EAB infestation in North America. While the map is updated and then distributed on a monthly schedule, occassionally we share this map via BYGL to keep this invasive species on the radar. 


It is an important reminder especially as we are entering a long holiday weekend, this insect, like many invasive species, is a hitch-hiker and can be moved in firewood and there are quarantines in place to limited this means of movment. 


If you have questions about EAB, check out the Regional EAB website managed and updated at Michigan State University with support from the USDA Forest Service at: http://www.emeraldashborer.info/
