Emerald Ash Borer Emergence Projected to Be Underway Soon

Areas south of I-64 may see emerald ash borer emergence soon. With the warm spring temperatures, degree day accumulations will soon reach levels when adult activity begins. While peak emergence (and activity) is still quite a ways off (accumulation of 1000 degree days), it is possible to note potential infestations at the apparent health of the ash tree, presence of D-shaped, and of course the confirmation of the borer itself.
