Report EAB

If you think you’ve found an Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) beetle or signs of infestation, always record the area where the specimen or damage was found. Take digital pictures of the insect and damage to your trees in case officials request them.

It is critical that you report your findings to your State Plant Health Director. If your State Plant Health Director is not listed below, visit the USDA – APHIS site for a complete list.
