Home or business owners that want to protect their Ash trees should contact a local tree service or arborist to inspect their trees. A tree service can provide treatments to protect Ash trees from being killed by Emerald Ash Borer. Several options are available to tree services to protect Ash trees, such as, tree spraying, soil injected insecticides, or tree trunk injections. Some Emerald Ash Borer treatments will need to be repeated annually, while other treatments will provide more than one season of protection.

Emerald Ash Borer was first discovered in New York in 2009 and has now been confirmed in 20 New York counties. The Department of Environmental Conservation will add Albany County to the other New York counties on the quarantine list. The Emerald Ash Borer quarantine regulates the movement of live Ash trees, Ash wood, Ash woodchips, and other related Ash products out of the quarantined counties.

EMERALD ASH BORER FOUND IN ALBANY COUNTY

Albany, New York



New York Department of Environmental Conservation officials announced the discovery of a single Emerald Ash Borer adult beetle in Bethlehem, New York. Bethlehem is located about 10 miles south of Albany. The invasive Emerald Ash Borer has been responsible for killing millions of Ash trees in the United States and Canada since it was first found in Michigan in 2002.

 


Like many surrounding states, New York has been monitoring the spread of Emerald Ash Borer with the use of insect traps. The traps use two methods to attract Emerald Ash Borer insects. Researchers believe the insects are drawn to the color purple, so Emerald Ash Borer traps are purple, triangular insect traps. Additionally, a pheromone (chemical attractant) paste is applied to draw adult beetles to the traps. Department of Environmental Conservation foresters will inspect nearby Ash trees for further signs of Emerald Ash Borer activity.
Emerald Ash Borer - adult
Emerald Ash Borer - larvae

Homeowners with Ash trees can look for four distinct symptoms of Emerald Ash Borer activity to determine if their Ash tree is infested.

  • Woodpecker activity in Ash trees. Woodpeckers feed on Emerald Ash Borer larvae. If there are flakes of bark under an Ash tree it could be Woodpeckers looking for Emerald Ash Borer larvae.
  • Vertical splits in the bark of Ash trees. As the Emerald Ash Borer larvae kills off cambium tissue the bark on Ash tree branches or tree trunks may split. Sometimes, S-shaped larval tunnels can be seen on the newly exposed wood.
  • Epicormic sprouting. Ash trees react to damage in the upper tree branches by sprouting new growth on the lower trunk or will grow new branches from the base of the tree trunk.
  • D-shaped exit holes. Exit holes from adult Emerald Ash Borer beetles can be found on Ash tree branches, the Ash tree trunk, or even on exposed Ash tree roots.
