DNR: Emerald Ash Borer beginning to emerge


INDIANA (WTHI) – If you haven’t seen evidence of the adult Emerald Ash Borer yet this season, it’s just a matter of time.

The destructive insects are beginning to emerge from underneath the bark of ash trees in central and southern Indiana to take flight.

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources say adult borers have been spotted in the Brownsburg area of Hendricks County.

A state entomologist reminds you not to move firewood because that can transport Emerald Ash Borers and other damaging forest pests.
