Emerald Ash Borer Awareness Week

Posted by Ron Wolford -

May 20 to 26, 2007, is being recognized nationwide as Emerald Ash Borer Awareness Week. Federal, state, and local agencies and groups are planning various educational activities and releases to the mass media on emerald ash borers during that week. The goal is to increase the public's awareness and knowledge of this insect that has the potential to eliminate ash trees from North America.

Emerald ash borer adults are expected to emerge in Illinois in mid-May, so the awareness week will probably coincide with news concerning its appearance. It is likely that additional areas of infestation will be found at this time and over the weeks to follow.
