Emerald Ash Borer in Indiana

The Emerald Ash Borer has been confirmed in Harris Township in St. Joseph County, Ind.

As a result, Indiana Dept. of Natural Resources established a countywide EAB quarantine, which also includes Mishewaka and South Bend.

Other EAB infestations have been found in Indiana's LaGrange, Steuben, Randolph, Huntington, Hamilton, Marion and Adams counties.

The department warns that scam artists are trying to take advantage of the situation. "If someone comes to your home claiming to be able to cure your ash trees of EAB, be suspicious," said Jodie Ellis, Purdue Extension Horticulturist.
