2013 CT Officials Hold EAB Informational Meeting

Dr. Jim Conroy and Basia Alexander attended a meeting held by Connecticut officials about the Emerald Ash Borer.

Officials in CT have reported finding the Emerald Ash Borer in many communities.  They point to people moving firewood as the cause of the insect coming into Connecticut from the west.  The insect originally entered the U.S. through the Great Lakes, probably in lumber from China, which is its original home.  Now the insect has spread (primarily by traveling in firewood) to the east.

Officials took arborists and others in CT to sites where the insect has been found.
