Emerald Ash Borer found in Montgomery County

Posted: Updated:

The emerald ash borer has been found in Montgomery County. That makes 27 Iowa counties with confirmed EAB cases in it. 

EAB is a small, metallic-green beetle that tunnel under the bark of ash trees and essentially kill the tree.

To help stop the spread of EAB people are asked to not transfer fire wood across county or state lines.
