I’m a pest too!
Perhaps some tire of my frequent articles on the Emerald Ash Borer that is bearing down on Central Iowa. My cause is simply to make all aware of what we are facing. Check the species of trees in your yard, or along your street or throughout your community and rural area. If they’re black, white or green ash trees, their years are numbered. Remember, there is no known cure for an infected tree, for once the exotic insect pest has entered the tree through the bark, the cambium will be encroached by the larvae, and girdling and irreversible damage with death to the tree is inevitable.
