Emerald Ash Borer

Emerald ash borer adult emergence was reported in southern Illinois in early May. They are being found at this time, mid-May, in central Illinois. They should start emerging in northern Illinois around the end of May into early June. A major means of control relies on killing the newly emerged adults as they feed on ash leaves, reducing the number of eggs laid. Refer to the articles on emerald ash borer in Issue 3 of this newsletter for further information. (Phil Nixon)
