Emerald Ash Borer Management Options Recently Revised and a new Spanish version is now available
A newly revised, 4-page “Emerald Ash Borer Management Options" PM 2084; is now available from Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. It is available only as PDF. This revision incorporates the most recent research findings into the recommendations, shows which life stages are affected by systemic insecticides, adds one new professional product, and highlights proper use to protect our pollinators. Recent research shows protection of ash trees is realistic when registered products are properly applied to healthy ash trees. Ash trees within 15 miles of a confirmed EAB infestation are at risk of attack. EAB has been found in one-third of Iowa’s counties; updated maps are available on this site under the ‘Visual Aids for EAB Identification’ section.
A Spanish version of ‘Emerald Ash Borer Management Options’ PM2084S has also been released. Both publications are available at the ISU Extension & Outreach Online Store.
