 Eye of the Beetle: How the Emerald Ash Borer Sees May Be Key to Stopping It

        (Provo, UT - July 5) - Researchers at Brigham Young University may have found a way
        to stop emerald ash borers based on opsins in their eyes which could potentially be
        shut down, preventing them from finding their home or a mate.

I know of two very nice Ash trees on my property that have died.  I have no idea of the cause.  There were dead limbs in the crowns last year and one of them actually sprouted some green this Spring, but the leaves died.  My plans are to harvest and saw them.

Please see below information pertaining an informational meeting being hosted by Texas Agrilife Extension and Texas A&M Forest Service about the current emerald ash borer (EAB) situation in Harrison County and the emergency quarantine that went into effect July 11th. There is no RSVP required to attend and we encourage you to attend this meeting to learn more about EAB, current monitoring efforts and the current quarantine. Other cooperators attending this public meeting include USDA-APHIS, Texas Department of Agriculture, Texas Parks and Wildlife and Texas Forestry Association.

 
 

The emergency quarantine enacted by Texas Department of Agriculture restricts the movement of Ash timber and all hardwood firewood to counties/areas outside the current quarantine boundary of Harrison County. The purpose of the quarantine is to help minimize the movement of EAB through human activities such as firewood distribution and log movement. More information in regards to the quarantine and the path forward will be provided at the meeting on July 25th.

So once the ash borers kill all the ash trees, what will they target next, do they have a clue?

Just because they can't live off it doesn't mean that they wouldn't try, like fleas on people, they will bite the crap out of you.

Hey MM,
  That sure sounds like how they effect the trees. The ashes in Cades Cove in the Smoky Mountains look just like that with the crown dying first. Mississippi is supposed to be free so far, but they are moving pretty fast.

Very early on Michigan forced the adult EAB to lay eggs on Maple & Walnut (maybe other species), the eggs hatched but the larvae was not able to survive on the / in the cambium of those trees.

Emerald Ash Borer May Become a Problem for Olive Growers

 (Dayton, OH - October 24) - Researchers at Wright State University have discovered
 that the emerald ash borer, which has already killed tens of millions of ash trees, has
 also become a threat to certain types of olive trees.
