Hello all who are interested in the Emerald Ash Borer Story

We are in that area where the EAB first occurred back in the Detroit, Windsor area in 2002 and now for us we have no white ash left in the area but for those who are in the first stages of the infestation you may be interested in this story which is going on up here in the London, Ontario area.......

The Canadian Forest service has recently injected 250 ash trees with a natural insecticide called "neem".
An insecticide made from the seed of the neem tree.

This insecticide is already registered for use in both Canada and the United States.

The insecticide apparently interferes with the larvae's moulting and kills them.

Thanks for the info Robert. Didn't know they were targeting white ash. Thought it was green or black ash they preferred. But, I suppose they are less selective if the other ashes are scarce.

cheers
Move'n on.

We had mostly white ash, some black and some green and a number of the rarer blue ash ( identified by it's square shaped twigs) and the only one they left behind was the blue ash.....they must not like the taste of it :D
