Emerald Ash Borer Update
Posted: June 12, 2012
As of early June 2012, the emerald ash borer (EAB) has been confirmed in two locations in Perry County:
- The first site was in a campground on the Susquehanna River in Liverpool, PA.
- The second location was at the first eastbound truck pull-off on Rt. 322 as you enter Perry County.
Both of these sites are USDA-APHIS, Otis Lab's trap efficacy test sites. The EAB was also found in Venango County. This site was turned in by the USDA and was found by visual / destructive survey in a campground in Emlenton, PA.
Additionally, the EAB was confirmed on a trap in an USDA-APHIS, Otis Lab trap efficacy test site at the State Center in Selinsgrove, Snyder County.
This brings the total number of counties confirmed for the EAB in Pennsylvania to 26.
