Tree-Killing Beetle Found In 2 More Ohio Counties
REYNOLDSBURG, Ohio (AP) – A wood-boring beetle that can kill ash trees and has been found throughout Ohio now has been confirmed in two more eastern Ohio counties.
The Ohio Department of Agriculture says the emerald ash borer has been found in Columbiana and Guernsey counties. Officials are urging residents there to help keep the dark green beetle from spreading by purchasing and burning only local firewood and being careful when transporting firewood.
The department says the beetle has been found in most of the state, including Wayne National Forest in southeastern Ohio.
Ohio is under a federal quarantine that makes it illegal for people to move ash trees and hardwood firewood out of the state.
