Learn to Identify, Report and Control the Spread of EAB
Emerald ash borer (EAB), Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire, is an exotic Asian beetle accidentally introduced into North America before 2002. Its larvae feed on and kill ash trees, creating regulatory headaches and costing millions in control measures. In July 2008, a small EAB infestation was discovered at a Wappapello Lake campground. Since then, the beetle has spread to a few other areas in the state. Controlling its spread will depend on early detection. Please learn to identify and report EAB in your area. This section shows you how.
