Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) Discovered in La Grange, IL
The Illinois Department of Agriculture confirmed the presence of the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) in La Grange. The insect was first discovered on the 0-100 block of South Spring Avenue in August 2009, where an adult EAB beetle was detected on purple sticky traps. More recently, a tree was discovered near the intersection of Cossitt and Stone Avenues infested with the EAB.
Ash trees can be infested with EAB for a few years before the tree begins to
demonstrate any signs of EAB infestation. Symptoms of EAB include:
- Canopy dieback
- D-shaped exit holes
- Shoots sprouting from the tree trunks
- S-shaped larval galleries underneath the bark
La Grange allows Homeowner Preventative Treatment For Emerald Ash Borer:
The Village of La Grange recognizes that Insecticides can extend the life and benefits of healthy ash trees during an EAB infestation. These applications are most critical for protecting trees in the years when surrounding ash trees are dying and the population of EAB is near its peak. They also buy time to allow the development of newer and better controls (insecticides and biological controls) for fighting EAB. If you elect to treat your ash trees, there are several insecticide options available and research has shown that treatments can be effective.
