Emerald Ash Borer Confirmed in Boone County

Iowa conservation officials announced Monday that the Emerald Ash Borer has been confirmed in Boone County. Iowa State University Extension said that two adult Emerald Ash Borer beetles were found in a trap, and were confirmed by an expert. In anticipation of the beetle, the city of Boone already has inventoried trees along streets and is working to establish funding for the removal of trees in the city's right of way. The Iowa Department of Natural Resources says Boone County is the 12th Iowa county where the Emerald Ash Borer has been confirmed.
