EAB in WI  

Add Wisconsin to the list of states the emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis) calls home...for now anyway. The Wisconsin Ag Connection, KARE 11 News, and others are reporting that EAB trapping surveys revealed the beetle's presence in Ozaukee County, which is north of Milwaukee.

Just last week, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency confirmed the presence of the emerald ash borer in Ottawa, Ontario...and a few weeks before that, we had the sightings in Virginia, and Quebec. It's no wonder that Minnesota is so worried.

For a whole slew of ISW posts about the emerald ash borer, just click on the tag below...

State and National parks are asking that people please NOT bring in firewood or pallets to burn. Buy your campfire wood locally. Sure it will probably cost more, but doing so will slow the spread of another nasty insect pest.

Grow Local. Buy Local. Burn Local. :-)
