Year in Review
The University of Illinois Plant Clinic processed over 3400 soil and plant samples from agronomic producers and the general public in 2014, with some issues becoming more and more familiar as the season progress. Some of the most common problems seen at the Plant Clinic in 2014 are listed in this article.
Last Issue for 2014
This is the seventeenth and last issue of the Home, Yard, and Garden Pest Newsletter for 2014. It contains an index of this year's articles. We plan to start 2015 issues in mid-April, depending on how early or late spring occurs next year.
Emerald Ash Borer
Emerald ash borer has been found in white fringetree, Chionanthus virginicus, in the Dayton and Springfield areas of western Ohio. Part of a dead adult found in one of the trees has been positively identified by USDA personnel along with larvae from the same tree whose anatomical characters are consistent with emerald ash borer.
