Emerald Ash Borer on green leaf
January 21, 2020
Emerald ash borer has been confirmed in Audubon and Guthrie counties for the first time. EAB larvae were collected from infested trees in rural Exira (Audubon County) and Casey (Guthrie County). The invasive, tree-killing pest has been found in 71 Iowa counties since 2010.
EAB is a small, metallic-green beetle that attacks and kills ash tree species. In its larval stage, EAB bores beneath the bark, disrupting the movement of water and nutrients within the tree. Infested trees typically die within two to four years.
